Bug Description

snapd was made available in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, so we should make snapd-glib available too.

[Test Case]
1. sudo apt-get install libsnapd-glib-dev

Expected result:
It installs!

Observed result:
It doesn't :(

[Regression Potential]
Not currently used by anything, so no chance of regression to existing packages. We need a patch to run snapd-glib on the older version of GLib, so there is a chance of different behaviour. The regression tests complete so this risk is reduced.

Changed in snapd-glib (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
status: New → Triaged

The patch to make this work is in the glib-2-40 branch on GitHub (
