@wjt that's a great question. I think it's a blog post size answer, which I'll do today. Thanks for the inspiration!
@wjt Tricky then. I basically became a package maintainer for those applications where the upstream are unwilling or unable to maintain the snap. So we're both in a similar place. I automate as much as I can, with notifications when upstream stable revision is newer than snap store stable version. But with daily builds, often the edge channel already has the latest build, so it's just case of a quick shake to make sure it didn't break, and release to stable.
@wjt But obviously some applications change more fundamentally or need to be built against newer GTK etc to function anymore. Those take more time to fettle, and can be frustrating.
