Great stuff. Thank you for your effort.

In general, how stable is this? Are there tests to verify this is
working correctly?

I ask because I'm planning to mention using sagemath on Fedora as an
alternative to Wolfram Mathematica to some people on our university,
and I wouldn't mind using stock sagemath instead of packaged one for
the time being, until packaged one gets wider testing.

I'm very grateful for your effort, and having packaged sagemath will
definitely make deployment and updates easier in the long term, but
leaving a good initial impression is really important when people are
exposed to free software.
