repository and convert it into an RPM. It is also capable of installing, scheduling and storing
the RPMs in a local filesystem repo for installing Spotify updates alongside regular system updates

Alternatively Spotify can be installed and run from your home folder which does not require you to give
root privileges to this script if you prefer
