Yes you are exactly right.
> wget https://github.com/Microsoft/cpprestsdk/archive/v2.8.0/cpprestsdk-2.8.0.tar.gz
The first one "v2.8.0" is a git tag from the Github repository (see
the 'tags' or 'releases' page), but the second one "-2.8.0.tar.gz"
should not have "v".
Apparently the Github download code removes "v" from the tag when it
creates the archive. This isn't documented anywhere.... so thanks for
working it out on your own :)
