Can you appeal to upstream to make releases? The Upstream Guide
has a section that may help you to convince them.

GitHub has support for users to create releases of their projects
<URL:https://help.github.com/articles/creating-releases/>, along with
release notes and arbitrary files to accompany the release.

So maybe you have a co-operative upstream who will help in this way.
