On behalf of the Xubuntu team, I would like to request approval for classic confinement for the snap package
xubuntu-installer. I’m following the template established by Ubuntu Budgie here. If there is a different path to take now, please let me know.
xubuntu-installer is the Xubuntu team’s version of the Canonical template
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.
Xubuntu, among other flavors, is transitioning away from Ubiquity for the 24.04 release. We’ve prepared a git mirror on Launchpad as well as snap packaging. Additional changes to the ISOs will be made following approval for this request.
Please let me know if you need any additional information, or if I need to make any adjustments. Thank you!
