Words like “Google” and “Googler” are popular among non techy people. Non techy people are not worried about sharing data almost always.
So a non techy person (who is also addicted to Instagram) can think
Snapcrafter = Works at Snapcraft = Works at snapcraft.io (maybe as admin) = Works at Canonical???
According to this, it is not confirmed that “snapcrafters” work at “snapcraft” or Canonical.
So snaps like this should use something like “by others” instead of “by Snapcrafters”
Because installing a
verified snap, installing a
packaged-as-snap-by-Canonical, not verified snap & installing a
maintained-by-3rd-party snap are 3 different things.
Trusting the real author, trusting Canonical & trusting unknown 3rd party are 3 different things.
