No, our infrastructure caches frequently requested tarballs so they
don't have to be regenerated on the fly. If you would prefer to
distribute a different version of the tarball for the release (e.g.
one with a different filename or folder structure), you can upload it
directly to the release page of the tag:

We'll automatically mirror your release to S3 and serve it from there.
You can also go ahead and edit the release page with the changelog
you've posted in this email thread to make it more user friendly.
