GitHub Releases failing during simp-beaker-helpers CD pipeline

Description

When pushing an annotated tag to rubygem-simp-beaker-helpers following the procedures in the SIMP readthedocs procedure, the Travis CI pipeline will:

  • Successfully run spec tests

  • Successfully publish the gem to rubygems.org

  • Fail to create a GitHub release

Notes

An example failure from the release of simp-beaker-helpers 1.18.3:

This issue has affected all releases since at least 1.17:

The problem seems likely to have been present since much earlier, but undetected—the markdown formatting of most earlier GitHub releases suggests that they were initiated from the GitHub releases UI/API instead of pushing annotated tags.
