Who will run Snapcrafters?

Who will land PRs in https://github.com/snapcrafters project after @popey leaves Canonical ?

I think this is now the time to put a bit more trust into the Ubuntu community and allow us write access to repositories under that project and potentially also permissions on the Snap store for packages uploaded by Snapcrafters (classic confined snaps really).

The Ubuntu community already has core developers that are able to upload deb packages to the archives, so a similar treatment needs to be done with the Snapcrafters project as well. There could of course be a criteria on who qualifies for that.


@om26er we’ve been discussing that. I don’t think it’s really tied to @popey and Canonical but more about organizing things for effective community collaboration. Stay tuned, we’ll be responding with further details soon!
