Thanks for your post and apologize for the delay. There is a combination of reviewers on vacations, leaves and a lot of requests to process that is generating this delay.
Let me first confirm that this is the place to perform such questions and ask for help. The
store-request tag is frequently visited by the
@reviewers on a weekly rotation base. Regarding processes, and/or general documentation to help you with your snaps, I would say that a handful set of links which can help when building/troubleshooting are these ones:
Without custom flags at installation, or subsequent
interface connections, snaps are confined to a restrictive security sandbox with no access to system resources outside of the snap.
Snap developers need to be aware of the scope
their applications have from within the snap.
Security policies and store policies work together to allow developers to quickly update their applications, and to provide safety to end users, and this document describes the sandbox and how to configure and work with t…
Interfaces enable resources from one snap to be shared with another and with the system. For a snap to use an interface, its developer needs to have first defined its corresponding plugs and slots within a snap’s
For details on how to add an interface to your own snap, see Snapcraft interfaces. For general usage details, see Interface management.
The table below lists currently supported interfaces, with links to further details for each interface.
Building snaps can be a new experience for many developers. Here’s some tips which can help you successfully, reliably build snaps for publication in the Snap Store. This is a wiki post so feel free to add more tips to this page, to help build successful snaps!
Snaps are built to run on top of a ‘base’ (core) runtime. This base is provided by an automatically-installed snap. Currently the most widely used core image is based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. As such we recommend all snaps …
Classic confinement review process
As of snapd 2.20, snappy supports confinement: classic which allows the snap to run without restrictions. Future releases of snapd will also support a classic interface (name TBD) that operates similarly. Snaps specifying classic confinement may target the stable channel, but are only supported on classic distro systems (ie, not on Ubuntu Core).
Because classic confinement snaps run without restrictions, use of classic confinement effectively grants…

Voting period is one week
Voting period extension is 3 days
Requester creates a forum post in the store-requests category and makes case for change. To disambiguate snaps, the requester should either give the store URL for the snap or give the name and publisher of the snap. Voting period starts at time of request.
I will now visit the other topics you created and hopefully can help you with your issues.
