Snaps are app bundles used on Ubuntu. The bundles is stored in a
squashfs image containing /, /bin, and /meta.

The “meta” directory should contain at least the “snap.yaml” file with
the name, version, synopsis (“summary”), and description of the
package.

For a first version this could already be enough. In later versions we
could offer ways to customize the contents of the /meta directory.

See this for documentation of the format:
