Can't figure out github syntax

I'm working on a new port that's fetched from github.

This works:

DISTNAME=       libcif-v1.0.2-FINAL

But I cannot for the life of me figure out how to convert that to the more 
normal USE_GITHUB syntax.

Is there a doc on the GITHUB syntax that explains it for dummies?
