Snap support in Mageia 6?

Postby xpris » Jun 17th, '16, 17:35

Hi.

I read about Snap packages (from Canonical) and all looks like many distribution (not only Ubuntu) but other like Arch, Debian and Fedora should have native support for this new Snap packages.

So my question, any hope for implementing Snap in Mageia 6 or future? Look like Snap can resolve many issues and in future can be a good solution for GNU/Linux world especialy when we want have new apps but without droping stability.

So any hope for Snap?

Really other distributions? Never heard anything about that.
And Mageia 6? No, because it never was part of the proposed features.

Interesting and a bit different response from Adam W. great former Mandriva supporter now in Fedora QA since his (un)fortunate layoff. Parenthesis as Mageia was born form those layoffs :D.
