Probably Brackets [1] is a good candidate too. And Atom [2]. Both 
already are in the COPRs.
[1] http://brackets.io/
[2] https://atom.io/


Additionally: maybe move all (and/or add new) games to a dedicated COPR 
could be useful too. Could serve as a testing ground for separation of 
repos and policies, and as a incentive to have new games packaged for 
Fedora. The cool thing about this is that it seems like a simple and 
automatic implementation of the "Rings thing" discussed in another 

If above is successful, in a longer term thing: maybe move all the 
(graphical?) apps to a "Fedora Apps COPR" which uses the libs from the 
"Official Fedora Repos" to kinda mold and prepare Fedora for the 
Runtime/Sandbox/Apps future?
