Create fips tracks for core22 snap

Hello,

Please create the following track names:

  • fips
  • fips-preview
  • fips-updates

on the core22 snap, these will contain FIPS userspace components matching the packages published on esm.ubuntu.com.

by itself, these tracks alone will be in the future switched to by pro client, and/or Ubuntu Core models, as one has to be booted into the FIPS kernel (available via pro enable fips) to use them in the FIPS mode, otherwise they are harmless.

Hi,

So, if I understand correctly, these tracks will represent a set of different choices for FIPS on core22 . I think it’s a fair use to have tracks with these names; there also similar patterns in other snaps that have “insider” tracks. I’m +1 to grant these but let’s ask other @reviewers for opinions.

Thanks,

Odysseus

ping @reviewers; does anyone else want to chime in on this?

+1 from me - as far as I understand this matches with the current plan for enabling the use of FIPS etc within snaps.

Hi,

The requested tracks have been created for core22.

Thanks,
