Snapcraft has an unmerged PR which adds support for
bionic Docker container builds. It has no comments. The test failure seems to be unrelated. Is there a reason why this PR isn’t merged? I’m not the original author but I’m happy to create a new PR if any changes are required.
The importance of official core18 images:
Many projects use Docker containers in their CI/CD pipelines. Even the
gtk-common-themes snap is built in Docker containers.
DockerHub is currently full of bespoke core18 snapcraft containers and some projects just install snapcraft from the bionic repo’s. Both solutions are far from ideal… Many users on this forum are asking questions about buiding core18 snaps in docker containers.
I, for example, currently have some fixes for
gtk-common-themes which I’m unable to merge because the
snapcraft version in bionic is too outdated.
