Question: Is personal-files interface allowed for $HOME/.netrc?

Hello, I’ve been notified that a snap I’ve previously maintained has problem accessing the user’s ~/.netrc (for preconfigured site’s username&password, I assume).

Is this access(readonly) possible with a personal-files declaration?

Yes this access is possible with a personal-files declaration - note for this to be granted to you will have outline reasons why the snap in question requires this access and whether you are requesting this be auto-connected when the snap is installed (or just available for manual connection by the user after installation if they wish to grant it).
