Hi everybody

Just a brief note to say (with apologies :) that we have aliased this
list to snapcraft at lists.snapcraft.io, please do update your address books!

http://snapcraft.io is the new home for all snappy crafters. We thought
it would be appropriate to find a neutral space on the interwebs to
celebrate the fact at snaps should now work, unmodified, on Arch,
CentOS, Debian, Elementary, Fedora, Gentoo, RHEL, SUSE... and of course
the whole family of *buntu's.

snapd packages have landed in those distros or been submitted for
inclusion, instructions are on the site, and I'm delighted to say that
all the ISVs that I've talked to who are moving to snaps for IoT or the
desktop or the cloud, are very excited to have those snaps "Just Work"
on all these other Linux distros too. We all know that snaps are
fantastic, it's wonderful to be confident that a great snap can be used
and appreciated by users regardless of their preference for Linux
distro. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to defragment Linux
apps, we're proud to be part of it and open to sharing the benefits with
everyone else who makes Linux possible.
