Classic Confinement Request: edubuntu-desktop-installer


I would like to officially request approval for classic confinement for the snap package called ‘edubuntu-desktop-installer’ on behalf of Edubuntu. It’s uploaded to my personal account since I’m having trouble coming up with a team account for Edubuntu, but I’m already a vetted uploader. An initial package has been pushed to the store to the edge channel.

edubuntu-desktop-installer is our version of the Canonical template ubuntu-flavor-installer

ubuntu-flavor-installer is as the README states “the starting point for ubuntu flavors” i.e. where flavours who are migrating from another installer such as Ubiquity to Canonical’s new snap installer ubuntu-desktop-installer. All flavours using this template has ubuntu-desktop-installer as its basis. The ubuntu-desktop-installer snap is classic confined and all installers based on this similarly need to be classic confined due to how it operates.

The reasoning for this request is that Edubuntu wishes to migrate to the new installer for the 24.04 LTS release. We currently already have the GitHub repo replicating into Launchpad, and post-classic approval will wire in the bits between Launchpad and the store itself automatically. Granting this request will allow us to include edubuntu-desktop-installer in our seeds subject to working with the release team to make the necessary changes to livecd-rootfs.

Thank you in advance for your time.

I realize this is nearly word-for-word the ubuntustudio-system-installer request, but it worked for that so I just did a copy/paste. :slight_smile:

Similarly to the details of your previous ubuntustudio-system-installer classic confinement request, this fits within the supported category of “Installer snaps for Ubuntu Flavors based on the official ubuntu-flavor-installer”.

Therefore, the requirements for classic confinement for edubuntu-desktop-installer are understood. I will start vetting now.

I have verified the publisher - classic confinement override for edubuntu-desktop-installer has now been granted. Thanks.
