Re: Poor state of support.


But as I know, current phones won't get the snappy based image, so this means the end of the support for every phone, doesn't it?

It's not dead, it's sleeping. But yes, snap is 'click 2.0', so
everyone should move to it.

I don't know, but that's a reasonable guess.

Depends where the bug(s) is/are. Developers can still update their
clicks in the store. For click itself, there's not been a lot of
active development there since snappy came along.

I don't know.

Probably the most useful thing to do right now is build and use snaps.
Build them with snapcraft, and upload them to the edge channel in the
store. Once stable, promote to stable channel. This will no doubt
uncover bugs in snappy [0] and snapcraft [1] which need to be on the
teams radar.

As for roadmaps for snappy related things, that's a question best
asked on the snappy mailing list I think.
