package: remove non-conventional prefix/suffix from github-fetched packagesHEADmaster
On Github, a large number of projects name their tag <some-prefix>-0.3-<some-suffix> (i.e release-3.0, poco-0.1-release, etc.). In fact majority of the cased adressed in this commit concerns prefixes. In most packages, we encode those prefix/suffix in the <pkg>_VERSION variable. The problem with this approach is that when used in conjunction with release-monitoring.org, it doesn't work very well, because release-monitoring.org has the concept of "version prefix/suffix" and using that they drop the prefix/suffix to really get the version. For example on https://release-monitoring.org/project/5418/ the latest release of "poco" is "1.8.1", not "poco-1.8.1-release". Therefore, a number of packages in Buildroot have a version that doesn't match with release-monitoring.org. Since really the version number of 1.8.1, is makes sense to update our packages to drop these prefixes/suffixes. This commit addreses the case of github-fetched packages with non-conventional prefixes/suffixes. Note that these changes modify the name of the files stored in DL_DIR, which means that this will force a re-download of those package source code for all users, and requires a change to their .hash file.
