As Emacs is an editor / IDE users expect to be able to edit files from anywhere on their file-system and to be able to call-out to toolchains installed on the host system - as such Emacs requires classic confinement.
I have created what is currently a name-spaced version of this snap -
emacs-alexmurray - but ideally I would like this to be just
emacs - there should be a definitive version of this application in the store, and I am willing to maintain it - as such I have already put in a request for this name via the store.
Finally, the snap ships both the emacs command as well as a few other commands (emacsclient, ctags, etags etc) so I would like to request appropriate aliases for each of these as well.
