This feature is (fortunately?) no longer supported by github. You can
only get downloads associated with particular tags.
Personally, gh-pages is the solution I favour, for both hosting
tar/zip balls, binaries, and for online documentation. It's just a
repo so it's really easy to use. Then that underappreciated command
'git archive' can do the job of making those balls, with optional
prefix; easily automated.
