Hi. This isn't really original at the core, but I haven't seen many flashable zips for new recoveries in this forum.
It's not original development so it goes in general.

It's easy to make recoveries flashable if you have the recovery .img file. I use a modified kernel flashing zip file... johnnysit's newest recovery complains about the update-binary but is sophisticated enough to take care of using it anyway.

Drop the .img into the /kernel folder of the zip. Modify META-INF/com/google/android/updater-script by replacing generic_recovery.img with the filename of your recovery .img.

Rename the containing zip appropriately and sign or don't.

This template contains an empty .img and shouldn't flash. I wouldn't try it unmodified unless you're prepared to replace the recovery afterwards.

Hope this is useful.
