Classic confinement for hostctl


I’d like to request classic confinement for `hostctl, an open-source project to manage system hosts file:

This is a simple tool to manage hosts file with less hassle. It let you have profiles and enable/disable them as needed.

It only needs access to /etc/hosts/, so I don’t know if classic is the right choice or if an specific system-file permission is a better option.


You mentioned /etc/hosts/, but I think you meant simply /etc/hosts. Write access to this file is provided by The network-control interface. Please adjust your snap to use strict confinement instead. If you need help with this, I suggest opening a new topic in the snapcraft category.

Thanks, I’ll continue with the strict confinement.
