Kindly confirm if anyone has got sensortag snap[https://github.com/mectors/sensortag] working on Raspberry Pi Board with Ubuntu Core as I am struggling to make it work using snap as that snap is not building the bluepy-helper. Can anyone suggest the alternative approach to resolve the issue.
Any help will be appreciated.

Subject: bluepy-helper not being built using
I am trying to use the sensortag snap available on github [https://github.com/mectors/sensortag] to get the data from TI sensor and posting these sensor data to cloud using our proprietary SDK APIs. I am successfully able to build and install the sensortag snap and also connected the snap to bluetooth-control to make sure that the snap has bluetooth-control.
I am following the README.md available with the snap.
- Build and install of the sensortag snap successful.
- sensortag.sensortag-init 7C:01:91:72:63:32 successful
- sensortag.sensortag-in giving error messages shown below:

FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/snap/sensortag/x1/lib/python3.5/site-packages/bluepy/bluepy-helper'
After some research it looks like that snap is not able to build the the "sensortag/parts/bluepy/buildbluepy-helper.c" and thus the bluepy-helper object is not created during the install of bluepy.
I can see that there is a bluepy-helper.c file but no object.
blescan.py bluepy-helper.c bluez-src.tgz get_services.py Makefile sensortag.py bluez-5.29 btle.py __init__.py __pycache__ uuids.json
If I run make manually within the folder the objects are created.
blescan.py bluepy-helper.c bluez-src.tgz get_services.py Makefile sensortag.py bluepy-helper bluez-5.29 btle.py __init__.py __pycache__ uuids.json
Compiling bluepy-helper works as expected but it is not copied to the build directory and thus not installed.
It seems to be known issue as shown in links below:
Can anyone help me resolve this issue.
