Release safety/verification

So, you're thinking if you can trust me. Fedora Copr builds, signs, and ships the final RPM from a provided spec file. The rpm spec works just like a recipe that generates a .rpm, which it's versioned and available at copr git dist. I try my best to keep it easily readable so it can be verified by everyone. There's also the Copr Project Homepage with more details about the Copr itself.

Changes compared with upstream

The option --no-sandbox is removed from default start via applications menu


If you want to ping me because a new release is available or just because this Copr repo isn't working for some reason, I'm usually at #fedora Freenode's channel with the nickname "luminoso". I only test the builds for Fedora 33 release, but all releases should work without any problems.
