Bug Description

Now that Snappy runs on the desktop, Snapcraft needs a qmake plugin.


 * It is not easy to make a snap from a project that uses qmake.

[Test Case]

 * define a snapcraft.yaml for a project that uses qmake with qt4.
 * run snapcraft, install the snap and execute it.
 * define a snapcraft.yaml for a project that uses qmake with qt5.

[Regression Potential]

 * None, this is a new plugin.

Hello Kyle, or anyone else affected,

Accepted snapcraft into xenial-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/snapcraft/2.12 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 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, and change the tag from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed. In either case, details of your testing will help us make a better decision.

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

Tested in an up-to-date xenial:

- enabled -proposed
- update snapcraft to 2.12
- got kyle's demos for qt4 and qt4 projects, found a bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/snapcraft/+bug/1596760
- uncompressed the file
- for both projects:
  - snapcraft
  - sudo snap install ...
  - text-editor
- checked that both projects work fine.

I'm going to mark this as verified, thanks Steve!

The bug reported in #1596760 was introduced in 2.12, but I think it shouldn't be a blocker for this release.
