Hello guys,

First of all, I'd like to say that the thing you are working on is very
promising. Something like that should be tried certainly. I'm very
interested in it! Thank you!

The question I'm here with, likely, seems to you boring and you have
answered it many times. However, a lot of things remain unclear to

What about backward compatibility with dpkg? Does Snappy imply that all
software which the maintainers have packaged in debs becomes obsolete?
With this question I'm worrying more about packaging and maintaining
procedures, rather than installation and deployment.

Sorry again if there is something publicly available on this and I
have missed it!

Thank you so much!
