John Stowers has no control over that, it's a Github artifact, and if Stowers wants to have actual release tarballs he's going to have to open a project somewhere else because Github has removed that feature. Perhaps you should contact him directly about that.

In the meantime, maybe we should add a "dependencies" folder to our SF file area and host our own osmgpsmap tarball.

This is a good idea.
Serge, can you create a tarbal?
Jerome, can you investigate if we can add a dependency section on SF? Alternatively, we could put it on the gramps server, with a link, just like our xml schema's.
