Publication output has become very large compare to before

On Publishing, it's noticed that the javahelps (or other zip, jar) outputs are very big, and that the JAR/ZIP file is also added as an asset to the final JAR/ZIP.
The problem was the post-process was using two functions in the Publish plug-in XML settings that we're not required as all the compression was done during the publishing. So to only get the 'jar' file, then I needed to move the entry for the ishjavahelp from one entry to another.
Originally the 'ishjavahelp' was in the upper entry with ISHCOMPRESSDITAOTOUTDIRECTORY, ISHCOPYCOMPRESSEDRESULTFILETOSHARE and ISHUPLOADCOMPRESSEDRESULTFILE plugin commands. So this was creating a JAR output and then compressing a second time. And moving this to the lower entry, this will only get the file from the output directory.
Tested here on the reference environment and I get the same size as an original publish from a few years ago. Can you try this and see if this also works for you and you get he required results.
