Make offline deployment packages friendlier to slow connections
We are using Octopus for offline deployments of various micro services to a remote data centre with a relatively slow connection.
At present every version we release requires copying 43.9mb of Calamari which never changes.
The number of files in the package also hurts copy performance even with parallel copies. There are 113 files in the Calamari folder and we are up to 60 in the Variables folder, .
Suggestion is to wrap the offline package into a self extracting archive. It would also be nice if we could avoid copying Calamari each time although once zipped it isn't too bad for us.
