Just asking. Does anyone from the dev team know if this would be a good idea?
snap is very interesting, but afaik nobody has experimented with making and maintaining a snap for Discourse.
It would be quite a gigantic effort and I am not sure how much could be reused with Discourse docker. The dev team do not have the resources or inclination to make yet another officially packaged version of Discourse.
it is not that of a big deal actually it can be done at packaging with script let me search for such build plugin.
