Motivation / Problem

Offers a .zip option for macOS users who prefer that to .dmg.


The app is already notarised as part of the dmg by gon. We now manually staple the notarisation token to the .app in the CPack build directory, then zip up the .app (rather than trying to run a separate CPack process with a zip generator).


The .zip file itself can’t be stapled to, but this is a file format/macOS limitation, and shouldn’t affect the user.

Commit message:
I am not sure I would consider this a Feature. That sounds like a bit too much for something this little. How about Add?

And please add [Actions] in the commit message; makes it easier for who-ever writes the changelogs :)

My suggestion:

Add: [Actions] Also produce macOS builds in .zip format
