New issue 2291: Please create snap packages

Sandeep Srinivasa:



Ubuntu version 16.04 will include the introduction of the snap infrastructure. With the snap format, we will be able to continually optimize Firefox on Ubuntu. Like our rapid engineering release cycle, snap format will allow us to provide Linux users the most up-to-date features, in particular security patches, even after major Operating System ship dates.

Snap packages are a new, secure, independent way of distributing software. Mozilla has already committed to release snap packages according to its own release cycle. Remember snap packages do not conflict with distro installed packages (of the same name).
