Ideally, zipfile.BadZipFile should be thrown when trying to open files 
that are zero-sized.

sridharr@whymac:/tmp/i > apy -c "import zipfile; zipfile.ZipFile
Traceback (most recent call last):

Fixed in r74245. Thanks for the report!

Amaury, shouldn't this also be merged to the py3k branch? (I am not 
aware of any Python commit policies so just asking)
msg91029 - (view) Author: Amaury Forgeot d'Arc (amaury.forgeotdarc) * (Python committer) Date: 2009-07-29 06:32
Oh, this was done with r74246, I just forgot to mention it.
Anyway all changes in trunk are regularly merged into py3k.

Is this going to make its way into a 2.6 release?
msg97320 - (view) Author: R. David Murray (r.david.murray) * (Python committer) Date: 2010-01-06 20:16
I've backported this to 2.6 in r77334 and to 3.1 in r77335.
