I have no idea why but people like to call the Ubuntu Core system Snappy.

As a result, we have and tags as separated when they are used for the same reason.

Here is an example: How to Load Ubuntu Core "Snap" as custom image on MAAS?

You can see on the previous thread it has both tags on the same question.

Lets make them a synonym!

I've gone ahead and created the synonym, now that I found where SE hides that button.

  • Can we revisit this, snappy or snaps have come to mean the packages/ package system, and is now on more than just ubuntu-core, it now has a desktop version snappy-personal, and is planed to be on the phones/tablets as well.
