This PR adds support for packit https://github.com/packit-service/packit, which syncs upstream releases into downstream automatically. See docu on packit side https://github.com/packit-service/packit/blob/master/README.md.

I dared to assign it to you
plus review request also from @schlomo
because I know nothing at all about such kind of things.

totally offhandedly (I did not yet read any documentation) your
looks as if that does not sync ReaR upstream releases
(the current ReaR upstream release is ReaR 2.5)
but if it syncs the current ReaR upstream master code.

Basically, some notes about packit.
What you can do with packit. First of all, and I would say the main packit task is to update Fedora package with the latest upstream releases. You may not care about Fedora packaging stuff, packit will do it itself. The command for this propose is called packit propose-update. We are planning to announce packit in https://fedoramagazine.org/ soon.

thank you for the background information.
Of course I am fine with improvements for Fedora builds.

My question https://github.com/rear/rear/pull/2145#issuecomment-493007991
is mainly about building a released ReaR version versus building our
current (possibly unstable work-in-progress) upstream master code.
