Bug Description

This is a new version of snapd.

The changelog is available here https://github.com/snapcore/snapd/blob/2.60/packaging/ubuntu-16.04/changelog, the raw git changelog is available here: https://github.com/snapcore/snapd/commits/2.60 (note that the debian changelog is auto-generated from the merges of the git commits so there is usually no need to look at the raw git commits).

The snappy team released a new release that we want SRU into bionic+. The process described in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SnapdUpdates was used and we have done integration-tests on the snappy images, autopkgtests on classic and unit tests.

GitHub Actions test runs can be found at https://github.com/snapcore/snapd/actions?query=branch%3Arelease%2F2.60

Since bionic has reached end of standard support I assume the reference to it in the bug description is an accident.

Hello Michael, or anyone else affected,

Accepted snapd into lunar-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/snapd/2.60.2+23.04 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, what testing has been performed on the package and change the tag from verification-needed-lunar to verification-done-lunar. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-lunar. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days.

In jammy I notice there is a delta to the packaging:

This was not present in the lunar upload. And the comment about debhelper >= 11.5 isn't material, we actually have >= 11.5 all the way back to focal. So why is this being added?

It's also not a new service, the file is present in snapd 2.58+22.04.

Packaging changes should be explained separately in an SRU. I am not confident that the effect of enabling a new systemd user unit by default will have been covered by CI given that it only affects user sessions.
