Also, something to be aware of, is that snaps are built by the upstream
or vendor, not by the distribution. That means that architecture choices
are up to the upstream. We do make cross-architecture build services
available through Launchpad but vendors are not obliged to use those,
and if they are using a third-party build service (for example on Travis
as part of their CI) then architecture availability will be determined
by those services.
