I just had an interesting thought come up.
On Twitter I saw a new software called “k3d” by Rancher (kubernetes related). My first thought was I wonder how many people were going to accidentally install the k-3d package (of the same name in the apt repos). Further conversations with Rancher let to them being interested in a snap package.
So… Is there a policy in the snap realm to registering a name that may collide with a name that exists in the Debian/Ubuntu repositories? In this case “k3d”.
