Summary0038320: Zip files with Windows
DescriptionIf I go to this page:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/freepascal/files/Win32/3.2.0

only EXE files are available. Some users would prefer Zip files as well, so you
can just unzip and run the executable. Other projects offer this, for example
Python:

https://python.org/downloads/release/python-391

FPC simply does not have the resources to do so.

Note that anybody interested to have such ZIP files for MS Windows is free to create them by downloading the sources and building using 'make zipinstall' or 'make singlezipinstall'. As mentioned by Florian, it's matter of resources necessary to ensure proper testing and maintaining releases in different formats.
