Bug Description

I'm currently working on snap'ing apport for Ubuntu Core and it'd be useful to know what version of a package appeared in a specific Ubuntu Core release. While this information exists in /usr/share/snappy/dpkg.list it'd be better if that did not need to be bundled with each .crash file and instead that dpkg.list file were accessible at a web site. I'm thinking something similar to the http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/xubuntu/xenial/daily-live/current/xenial-desktop-amd64.manifest for Ubuntu CD images. This way if apport only collected information regarding the Ubuntu Core version the package versions included with that version could be ascertained with little effort.

the manifest exists on the launchpad build page, but we have no way to actually bind it to a snap revision because that matching only happens after store upload ...

that said, for the automated daily builds i have http://people.canonical.com/~ogra/core-builds/ but this operates on the log for builds on lillipili so manual builds done without the scripts there do not show up. it might make sense if someone could turn my log-scraper into a proper lp-lib tool to de-couple it from the build scripts.

Is this effort still under way? Can you please come to us to work together on this issue?

Manifests are also produced by the launchpad builds, e.g.:
