The workaround will be, once the snap version of GIMP 2.10 is
available, to install that version. In the meantime, we're looking at
options to upgrade MyPaint to a GIT version of 1.3 in order to make the
two coinstallable again. At that point, we might be able to get an
exceptional Stable Release Update.

I think the consensus at this time is to avoid including large SNAPs
like this one as much as possible.

The entire issue is outlined in a new blog post on the website here: ht
