While investigating logs attached to the issue 268766, we found that remote host does not have unzip utility. This led to build failure (in Simple remote mode) without clear error message.
This should be fixed: there should be an error message that unzip is absent
1) when building
2) as a warning when setting up remote host
It works like a charm!
Look what it prints in the case there is no unzip:
unzip: failed to start unzip: No such file or directory
There was an error unzip files. Trying to recover using plain files...
And it builds OK. So this bug should be set to rather "invalid" than "fixed" - but I just fixed a typo (should be "error unzipping" instead of "error unzip"):
change set 2aa973b2c116 on enum/r82
Integrated into 'main-silver', will be available in build *201611100001* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
