While LineageOS is not (entirely) free software it is much better than its predecessor, Android. I have Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet (2014) on which I would like to try install LineageOS (since it doesn't work with Replicant).

I can't get an image file from Lineageos.org - apparently because it is not maintained any more.
But on lineageosroms.com I can find a nightly build from February 2019.

I have searched but can't seem to get an answer: Is lineageosroms.com a reliable source?

You can verify if it was an official build or not by following the instructions here: https://wiki.lineageos.org/verifying-builds.html

If it's an unofficial build, no real way to verify its reliability.

Be sure that your model is supported by LineageOS. Go to wiki.lineageos.org/devices to verify it.

Many universities have LineageOS mirror. For example, I use mirrors including USTC or Tsinghua University. (They are not accessible from Europe, though. But I believe that many European universities also provide mirror service for LineageOS.)
