Yes, a github “feature”

Github creates a tar of all of the git repo and names it 
Our Version labels are frr-5.0.1 and the project is called frr

so this causes the issue.

I think the better way to address is to NOT publish that specific tar
(anyone could clone the git if needed) and instead publish the 
“Distribution tar”
(as made with “make dist”) in the future.

But still open to discussion. unfortunately, this double-naming can’t
be resolved (as most don’t feel to change labels just to work around a 
github quirk)
