VLC snaps from CI are not promoted to edge channel sometimes


I see a recurring problem with VLC snaps from CI/CD system not being reflected as available to install. They are seemingly uploaded just fine, but not always visible via “snap info vlc” or not on “edge” trac on the snap store.

To illustrate the issue, from https://code.videolan.org/videolan/vlc/-/jobs/399432:

Seemingly upload was fine, but on snap info vlc:

  latest/stable:    3.0.10                      2020-04-29 (1620) 305MB -
  latest/candidate: 3.0.10                      2020-04-23 (1620) 305MB -
  latest/beta:      3.0.10-57-gffd69e124b       2020-05-29 (1686) 304MB -
  latest/edge:      4.0.0-dev-11995-gdf82451c98 2020-05-26 (1679) 341MB -
installed:          3.0.10                                 (1620) 305MB -

And on snapstore developer page:

As you can see, both edge and beta are not promoted to the respective channels.

What can I do to get this fixed?

Thank you,

This is still happening:

and from https://code.videolan.org/videolan/vlc/-/jobs/401372:

Where do I file a bug so that can be looked after?

Sounds like a store issue so another place you could try is launchpad.net/snapstore


PLease do file a bug where Ian mentioned, a short explanation and link to this forum thread should suffice as your debugging info is pretty detailed.

A question, are you pushing builds in quick succession or in parallel? This smells like a race condition somewhere.
