looking into removing the rolling* releases from the set of snaps
<> that are not planned to be switched
to squashfs, but since we don’t control most of them he wanted to get in
touch with the affected devs directly or send an announcement first. This
looks like just such an announcement, but I’ll let mvo confirm. If we are
to do this on behalf of the developers, I suggested an RT for audit, which
someone from the Store team with admin access would be able to action. ​
