    ● The snap format is a compressed filesystem with a single
    metadata file describing the security profile and desired
    integration of the snap.
    ● That format is shared by everyone in the snap community,
    regardless of their choice of store, authentication systems,
    licensing or host Linux distribution.
    ● Decisions taken now by a Technical Oversight Board that
    represents a range of communities and companies.
    ● Easy packaging system, Package it once and be in control of
    the version delivery and the software stack
