The naming sense of the repositories in Snapcrafters

I found it troublesome that the repoes in Snapcrafters are named app_name instead of app_name-snap, which makes it harder to differentiate with the repoes that actually holds the code of app_name (especially when forked to make pull requests).

@popey what do you think?

That’s an interesting point. One thing I am loathe to encourage is the name: foo-snap in the snapcraft yaml. I have a (perhaps irrational) fear that if you have a repo called foo-snap this will legitimise the use of the -snap suffix. Some people have already done this.

I really dislike the tautology of having -snap in the name of snaps in the store and would like to ensure we don’t do anything to intentionally or unintentionally encourage it.
