Hi bananaapple, there are two things that need to be addressed:

1. We need to decide whether this is a bug in make_archive() implementation or not. See msg223572 and msg223668 for details. I personally agree with David's analysis in msg223668.

We can rephrase make_archive() documentation to clarify what root_dir exactly does.

2. If this is a bug in make_archive() implementation, we need to add a test case. You can take a look at Lib/test/
