Hi all! I’m the maintainer of the
picard snap, but right now I don’t have any free time to maintain it.
The code for the snap is on this repo:
There’s a new release of picard (2.4.1), but since the latest snapcraft (4.x) updates the snap is not building anymore, as we (@Lin-Buo-Ren thanks for your help!) copied the old python plugin and made some modifications to it: https://github.com/pachulo/musicbrainz-picard-snap/blob/master/snap/plugins/x_python.py
If somebody is willing to make PRs to the repo I can test & approve them, but I think that it would be better to transfer the snap to the snapcrafters group, refine it, and then try to upstream it.
Thanks for your help!
Bump to see if anyone can help with this.
I wonder if it’s more easy to make the upstream upgrade their setuptools component.
Well, in the end the main maintainer of picard will be taking care of this! thanks @phw !!
And actually I had success! It did cost my some time and a few struggles, but now it is updated.
The latest snapcraft config which has now been built is at https://github.com/phw/musicbrainz-picard-snap/commits/master . I changed the setup to make use of the now available kde-neon extension, integrated appstream metadata support and updated the dependencies for what is needed by current Picard.
We’ll have a new release soon, then I’ll also update the website to link to the snap.
As a Picard user I’m thrilled
