What is this repo and what does it do: "signal-xenial sources.list"? And is it safe to delete?

I have signal-xenial sources.list installed and I don’t know what it does. I can see it is xenial and I am running on jammy, so I am wondering if it is safe to delete?

signal-xenial.list in /etc/apt/sources.list.d is the list file for the Signal messenger package. It is called xenial because it hasn’t been updated since xenial, but it will still pull in the most recent version, which runs equally well on Ubuntu 23.04.

If you remove it, the Signal app will be removed from your system (the next time you run sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade). Nothing more, nothing less.
