this is my first package so i need a sponsor.

restic is a backup software written in go, so its only one single executable. Unfortunately it didn't work with %autosetup so i chose to unpack it manually.

I hope i made everything correct, i uploaded it to copr and tried everything in a fresh Fedora 25 VM and it installs and runs cleanly.

I also talked to the creator of restic and he is happy that i want to bring it to Fedora.

The package needs to be built from source. Copying just the upstream binary is not enough:

Did you not want to work on this, Philipp?
