Test suite to install popular snaps

I would like to discuss if as part of snapd we should test/check the instalation of popular snaps. Also when/how execute this tests.

I already implemented a test which is installing snaps from the store and found an Issue in branch Release/2.27 related to assertions.

Also we could have a test suite out of snapd that we run regularly (not for every commit), to periodically check this.


Here there is a branch with the implemented test:

Here there is a list with the snaps tested:

Hello @cachio!

Here is the repo with the snapcraft tests for upstream snaps:

I will add there the ones that we don’t have from your list.
I think it would be nice to keep the list in your forum post, instead of the separate paste. That way you can update it as new snaps appear.

Nice, I created this list based on the input that @popey provided and the information got from grafana kpi dashboad. It is attached to this post now.
I’ll add the execution of the test to the nightly build once it is approved.

Looks good, are we pushing for health checks in snapd or working on doing sanity checks in the testbed?

Also, conjure-up is from Canonical :wink:
