Track request for bitcoin-core snap

The command line and RPC as well as REST interface changes between major versions of Bitcoin Core and thus we need different tracks for each branch (major version).

I kindly request the “0.17” and “0.18” track, where “latest” currently points to “0.17” and in a few weeks (after the 0.18.0 release) points to “0.18”.

Per Process for aliases, auto-connections and tracks we need two positive votes and there’s a waiting period of 7 days, from the moment you made the request.

The URL you linked to is very clear about the Bitcoin Core release cycle and support commitments for versions, so from a reviewer standpoint I can +1 this. As explained above then, we’ll check again in a few days to see if any other reviewers chimed in, and act depending on how many votes are cast.

I am also a +1 on the track request. I’ve been working one-on-one with Marco as he’s set up the official bitcoin-core snap. They have a well-documented release process, and 0.17 is the major component where they introduce breaking changes.

Hello folks,

The waiting period has elapsed and we have +2 votes from reviewers, so I’ve created the tracks which are now ready for use.

Thanks, working great!

Hi, I’d like to follow up and request the “0.19” track, now that has been released today. See


I’ve added the 0.19 track: +1 from me as reviewer and we invoked Simplified track request process for snaps with predictable cadence for this.
