I wouldn't rely on this, it has already been broken more than once. In general you anyways want to apply a function on a checkout in order to generate a release tarball (that is unless you still live in an age were you manipulate version numbers manually). What you can do is simply upload a tarball to what github considers a release (i.e. a tag). See for example the release for uchar:


The package downloads the associated tarball not github's notion of "source code" on that page.
