Is there any way for Github to notify a person, or track when the .zip file from a plugin repo is downloaded from Github?

The ZIP that I am referring to is that which is available when viewing a public repository page on Github's website.

There are no ways to do it because GitHub delivers only two kinds of notifications:

  • Participating:
    • Someone mentions you or a team you're a member of
    • You are assigned to an issue or pull request
    • Someone makes a comment in a conversation you're subscribed to
  • Watching
    • Opened issues and their comments
    • Opened pull requests and their comments
    • Comments on any commits
    • Published releases
