Classic confinement for just

Just is a command runner that reads user-authored files, that are similar to makefiles, and runs the commands that those files contain. Because those commands are shell script snippets that expect to have the same permissions as the user, and see the same filesystem as the user, just requires classic confinement.

I’m the author of just, and the github repo is here:

Thank you!

As a build tool which needs to execute arbitrary external commands, just meets the requirements for classic confinement. just also fits within one of the supported categories for classic confinement (as per Process for reviewing classic confinement snaps) which is compilers etc.

As such, the requirements for classic confinement are understood. @advocacy could you please perform publisher vetting? Thanks.

Thank you @alexmurray!

@advocacy if you’d like to check that I’m the owner of the main just repo, you can check this PR in the repo, where I link back to this forum post:

Or you can create an issue and I can confirm there.

+1 from me, I verified the publisher.

Thanks @Igore - classic confinement override granted for just - this is now live.

Thanks @Igor and @alexmurray!
