I am in the process of creating a snap for sos, which is a tool that collects multitude of data from a system, that then allows a support personnel to analyse logs, data and configuration, and potentially diagnose and understand the problems better for customers/clients.
This tool is used by Canonical and RedHat quite readily for this purpose.
As per the guidance from snapcraft, it is strongly recommended to strictly confine snaps, and I have been going though this in an iterative process (2 weeks) and have been solving all the different issues that
snappy-debug is showing. My current WIP for a potential PR for the sos project is here, which will show you the
snapcraft.yaml that I am working against.
Below is the link to my latest
snappy-debug output that I am still working on, and still need to iteratively go through and resolve issues that it is reporting.
I am using
sos-arif-ali as a temporary staging for the snap, so that I can get internal folks and some RedHat folks to test, so that we can iron out any issues. At one point, either myself or one of the Engineering folks in Canonical will be asking for
sos name to be released, so that we can publish the sanp under that name.
Thanks in advance
