Using confinement: strict tells the store that it's OK to return this
package as a result of `snap find` for users to install. Which means, if it
doesn't work unless you use --devmode, you might have unhappy users :/

> - confinement: devmode

Using confinement: devmode tells the store that this package should *not*
be included in results of `snap find`. You (and any users who know) will
still be able to `snap install --devmode` it, but it's not provided to
general users via snap find/install.

Hope that helps
