Errata user documentation

I’m new here but I wanted to share a couple of errors I found in the user documentation. It’s no biggie but coming from a QA background this kind of thing drives me batty. Mostly are minor functional errors.

User documentation error: https://snapcraft.io/docs/getting-started
The author was showing examples of how to list vlc-version control numbers. In this example the user is told to enter >>snap list --all however, the author forgot to add ‘vlc’ to the example. As in

snap list --all vlc.

snap list --all will dump everything that snap installed. As in this example:
root@Desktop:/home/anyuser/Downloads/opera61-beta# snap list --all

Fixed that one :slight_smile: You should be able to edit the documents at snapcraft.io/docs by scrolling to the bottom and clicking the “Help improve this document in the forum” link, scrolling to the bottom of the first post and clicking “edit”.
