Snappy in Arch moved to community repo

Hey there snappers!

I’d like to announce something that you may have noticed during the last update of snapd to version 2.0.10. The AUR package is no longer there, instead you can now get and update snappy on Arch simply by running this one-liner:

„pacman -S snapd"

That’s right, snapd and snap-confine have now moved to the official community repository. This means that the barrier to entry is now significantly lower and that installation is even faster than before. You still want to read the snapd wiki page to know the details about various post-install activities.
