I suppose you are using a browser to download it or wget with the
parameter "--content-disposition", but it's not your or github's
fault: if you look at the release page you can see that they seem to
have tagged it wrong, compare the releases below or equal to v0.9 to
the subsequent


with proper tagging, prepending the name of the tag should let you
specify a consistent (not depending on the download type) naming for
the tarball, for example


but as tagging for the following releases is broken I don't have a
solution for you apart for adding an alternate extraction routine,

tar xvf $CWD/$PRGNAM-$VERSION.tar.gz || tar xvf
