Bug Description

I've got a part that points to a source directory outside the snap tree, something like

    source: /path/to/my/code

This works if I snapcraft build, but cleanbuild gives me a confusing error:

Failed to pull source: unable to determine source type of '/path/to/my/code'.
Check that the URL is correct or consider specifying `source-type` for this part. See `snapcraft help sources` for more information.

A less confusing error would help!

Changed in snapcraft:
status: New → Triaged
importance: Undecided → Medium
assignee: nobody → Sergio Schvezov (sergiusens)

I got the same error message and was quite confused. Fortunately Kyle helped me out - my issue was that the travis setup script did not copy all the bits from the source into the snapcraft chroot and I got this error. Having a hint lile "unable to find or determine source type of "/path/to/my/code" would be cool.
