GitHub does support marking releases as prereleases, but only for Git tags
which have been annotated with release metadata via the GitHub site or API.
 (These are "releases" in the same sense as "github.tarball_from
releases".)  The GitHub API provides an endpoint (
that returns the most recent non-prerelease release.  However, I don't know
how many projects actually use the releases system, and I have also seen
projects that forget to attach releases to some subset of their Git tags.
