Requesting default aliases for libxml2-utils

Dear @reviewers, I would like to request default aliases for the libxml2-utils snap.

Command Requested Alias
libxml2-utils.xmllint xmllint
libxml2-utils.xmlcatalog xmlcatalog


Nothing in particular aside from fewer keystrokes required to run any of the commands.

A silly question (that isn’t meant to derail the request for aliases, which is probably still valuable given scripts will be depending on those names already): wouldn’t it be better to call your snap xml2, and the apps inside, lint and catalog?

I simply prefer Debian-ish names, that’s all.

not if you want them to transparently replace upstreams binary names … (so scripts keep working etc)

(i agree about the package name though … but aliasing to copletely new binary names for known tools seems weird)

22 days have passed, I would like to request a voting period extension according to the Process for aliases, auto-connections and tracks .

+1 for auto-aliases.

@alexmurray, @mvo, @natalia, @popey - can one/all of you vote for these aliases?
