Yeah, this is internal to the plugins. If you're not using any custom
local plugins you can disregard these deprecation notices. We ended up
cutting a release right after the feature was introduced but before all
of snapcraft's built-in plugins moved to using it. Don't worry-- this
has been completed in master, and these deprecation notices will
disappear in the next release.
