There are lots of news going on about support for 'Snaps' in 16.04. In the original post, Olli wrote:
In Ubuntu 16.04 LTS we will make it possible to install snap packages
alongside traditional deb packages. These two packaging formats live
quite comfortably next to one another and enable us to maintain our
existing processes for development and updates to the OS
and he goes on talking about developers and security..etc..
But questions remain as to how to find a snappy package and how to install a snappy package? How to even know if an application has a snappy package? Is there a 'snappy repository' that hosts these snappy applications?
