That's true.  The way to do this is to use the Github 'Releases' tab.  It can create a tag for you that you can associate binary tarballs with, and these are served separately from the repository itself.


There's no API to automate this yet, but it's in the works I hear...

(As Daniel points out, Github currently doesn't let you differentiate development tags from release tags, but I'd be surprised if the API doesn't support this when it's released, since you can already mark a tag as "prerelease" or "release" if you use their interface manually).

Tarballs in the repo is indeed the worst of all worlds.
