[New-bugs-announce] [issue20102] shutil._make_zipfile possible resource leak

Peter Santoro report at bugs.python.org
Wed Jan 1 12:21:17 CET 2014

New submission from Peter Santoro:

Now that zipfile.ZipFile supports the context manager protocol, shouldn't
shutil._make_zipfile make use of it to avoid the possibility of the archive file not being closed properly if an exception occurs?  It should be noted that shutil._unpack_zipfile does use try/finally to ensure that files are closed.
