I need a software that is not present in the repos, it is 'dupeguru'

I was wondering what would be my best option to get it. Obviously I can
grab the source package provided in its homepage, but this is not the
best way IMHO.
This project is also present on github, 'here'
I was thinking of using OBS to get it, but I'm not entirely sure on how

moment, I have only used to branch some packages that I regularly use
(mainly to avoid using many additional repos in my Tumbleweed
installation, and just use my own).
Is it a good choice? I need to know:
- Being the source on github, will it update automatically to new
versions, or the maintaining process has to be done manually?
- Is this method a fast one or it will take me days of work to
- What kind of technical knowledge is required to do it? I have a
basic knowledge of how OBS work (mainly for the purposes stated
above), is it sufficient?
- Is there somewhere a _simple_ guide that I can follow to do that,
OR, is there someone that is willing to help me?
Summarizing, I need this software, I don't really want to go to its site
to grab a new version every time it is available, and while I am at it,
if it is something that won't take me an overwhelming amount of work to
do it, I'd also like to learn how to use OBS to import external GitHub
projects in my installation.
