Requesting auto aliases for juju-helpers


#1

I would like two auto aliases for the juju-helpers snap:

juju-helpers.juju-bundle -> juju-bundle
juju-helpers.juju-kubectl -> juju-kubectl

This is because juju will only pick the executables up as plugins if they follow the naming scheme juju-*.


#2

+1, although the snap prefixed name would follow the Juju plugin naming scheme, it would be odd to have juju helpers.juju-bundle

I’ll note that there are other Juju plugins that are packaged as separate snaps. Any reason not to split these out into separate snaps?


#3

:+1: from me too.


#4

@sparkiegeek: I originally packaged them as separate snaps, but since they’re tied together by a common library, it’s easier on development if they sit in the same repo. As far as I can tell, there isn’t a way to publish multiple snaps from the same repo with build.snapcraft.io, so publishing them in a common snap is the best route I’m aware of.
