There's something to say about snapd and snap store client (GUI). that huge feature request doesn't bring any sooner hope.

We install apps using CLI (apt) and there's Snap CLI

- bring mirrors facility for snapcraft (whether use CLI or desktop client, it'll connect to selected servers)
(that is the goal of this feature request)

**Snap CLI**

sudo snap install nextcloud
(it connect to mirrors and download the snap and manual updates as well)

In this case, no gui contents as client-app (no images, videos etc) and you can provide option to opt in-out metrics through other settings modification

**Snap Store**

It will connect to mirror servers for downloads/updates but gui contents (images, videos,...), metrics, and other data fetch using existing method (centralized servers). just snap store/ gnome software is a different thing
