Am using Cachyos (Arch Linux)

Are you waiting for a particular feature? Snapd does not reexec on Arch, there’s a plan to support this and make it opt-in for the users, but we haven’t set a target date for it yet. So for now, snapd udpates come through the AUR package. I will be updating the package when the 2.62 is no longer marked as draft which usually happens when it goes through the QA pipeline and reaches the candidate track.

Okay, that make sense, Is there any way I can help in enabling reexec on Arch Linux. Nothing particular was just curious, cause I see alot of fixes in snapd 2.62.
