Outside file permissions, the only problem here is that GitHub's API anonymous usage has a limit of 60 calls, per hour, per IP. Don't think it should be a problem unless there are a bunch of users behind some proxy...but still I think it should be considered.
Could we create a GitHub account that all launchers use? Simultaneous login with the same account on several machines is not an issue, I think.

This is based on Sparkle for macOS. Not sure if there is a Linux equivalent.

The Linux equivalent for auto-updating would be whatever package manager your distro uses. Just need to put the packages into the relevant repository. I just hope the Ubuntu daily PPA gets fixed soon. That made things so easy.
