Bug Description

* Impact

libsnapd-glib is a small library used to talk to snapd. It's currently used by gnome-software but has been added to pulseaudio in bug #1781428. It currently recommends snapd but the library works fine without it and there is no reason to pull snapd from library clients.

* Test case

$ sudo apt install libsnapd-glib1

-> snapd shouldn't be pulled in

* Regression potential

That's only a depends change, snapd isn't going to be pulled in when installing the library anymore but that's wanted

Can we expedite release of this, and so get the original pulseaudio update restored quickly?

I just had to help someone force downgrade pulseaudio packages from the update, as deleting that update that after they had upgraded meant that when they wanted to install pulseaudio -dev packages, they were uninstallable.

e.g.

The following packages have unmet dependencies.
libpulse-dev : Depends: libpulse0 (= 1:11.1-1ubuntu7.4) but 1:11.1-1ubuntu7.5 is to be installed
               Depends: libpulse-mainloop-glib0 (= 1:11.1-1ubuntu7.4) but 1:11.1-1ubuntu7.5 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
