To get the development version (v8.0 currently),

git clone --recursive https://github.com/cp2k/cp2k.git cp2k

To get a specific release (v7.1 as you mentioned),

git clone -b support/v7.1 https://github.com/cp2k/cp2k.git cp2k

The support/vx.y branch is the name of the release channel on github, while 
the release downloadable from https://github.com/cp2k/cp2k/releases 
is just a tarball of the support/vx.y source code. *Use either*. The 
tarball is provided for folks who don't have/use git. Only 'cp2k-7.1.tar.bz2' 
from that list contains source code with DBCSR and won't need git at all. 
The sopt and ssmp files are pre-compiled binaries for single node
