Is there a particular reason why docker-snap does not use the recommended “core18” base?
I don’t think there’s a particular reason why it has the core base other than it hasn’t been updated to build from a core18 base. Note that it’s not strictly necessary to upgrade snaps to use newer bases, it’s just recommended for snapcraft features I think, and so it’s more of a decision from the snap maintainer, @tianon really.
@tianon Do you see any issues with using core18 as base? docker is the only snap that pulls in the core-snap dependency on my device. It would be nice to avoid this dependency if possible.
