I have just discovered a tool that works in ubuntu and is designed to manage self contained distributions, similar to the way that windows and mac are packaged.
I have noticed that someone changed the name of some individual libraries and it is now possible to install Seamly2D and Valentina on the same Ubuntu installation. This is useful for testing on parallel versions.
I want to solicit opinions on whether it is useful to go one step further and distribute executable using Snap. I would be interested in hearing answers like YES, NO, don’t know, don’t care. If you don’t know or don’t care, I would appreciate it if you can take the time to say so. I am trying to decide whether creating the process to package future linux distributions in this way is something I want to spend my time on.
If you care enough to investigate what Snap is, here is a reasonable description Snappy (package manager) - Wikipedia
