I'm currently testing a port for OpenBSD (https://github.com/jasperla/openbsd-wip/tree/master/net/scrollz), and would like to add git hub to the MASTER_SITES. To download from scrollz.com/download/ I'm using:

DISTNAME =      ScrollZ-${VERSION}

I cannot simply add github to the list of mirrors because the archive name is different (https://github.com/ScrollZ/ScrollZ/archive/sz2.2.3.tar.gz).
Is it worth renaming the .tar.gz github releases be consistent with the download page?

Github names the filename based on tags applied to the source code. If I remember correctly I was using sz${VERSION} format for tags because of CVS - it wouldn't allow numbers and dots only. I have applied tag ScrollZ-2.2.3 to the latest release and it can now be download as:
https://github.com/ScrollZ/ScrollZ/archive/ScrollZ-2.2.3.tar.gz

Do you need me to tag all the old releases or is it good enough if I apply both tags for all new releases from now on ?

This is great; I've added github to the list of mirrors in the port. I'm only working with 2.2.3, so no need to tag older releases.
