We are trying to define what goes into the snap. For example, we want
the snapcraft.yaml some times in there, and if the snapcraft.yaml has
references to a custom plugin, maybe it makes sense to include that
plugin too. What we have currently is inconsistent, and thus a bug of
course. Your question is not silly at all, we need to improve there.

Take a look at the discussion in, and if you have
something to add, please leave a comment in there.

pura vida.
