Creating a GitHub release usually works well, but for one particular project I can't seem to be able to publish: the Draft stays a Draft and never gets published.

It happens both for forks and for projects I created from scratch.
Happens with both Firefox and Chrome.


I just had the same issue, in my case the solution was the "Tag version" field at the top of the form. As long as I left that field blank, clicking "Publish Release" did nothing and the release stayed in draft. As soon as I added the version number to it, a tag was added and the release was published.
