Description of problem: I went to spotify.com to install Spotify and realized that there is only a debian version released for Spotify, but they however offer to use something called snap which allows anyone to install Spotify in systems that aren't debian based or if someone doesn't want or can use Ubuntu for some reason. Looking at https://pkgs.org/download/snapd I see that Fedora already included snapd into their official repositories. I'm therefor adding the spec file from Fedora in hopes to get someone to package snapd for Mageia 7.

FYI there is already lots of https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Ways_to_install_programs on Mageia. - But snap would be useful too.
Regarding Spotify specifically, it can be installed using Appimage, which we have:
Sorry i meant Flatpack - not Appimage
Sure, but why not give people options?
After all, it's a Free country.
Assigning this package request to all packagers collectively. On a voluntary basis, one of them might, if there are no license or other legal issues, want to integrate it to the distribution and maintain it for bug and security fixes.
Nobody seems to have volunteered for this during the past year, but I'd just like to add my vote to say that snap/snapd would be very useful. I came across an interesting data analysis software for Linux (somewhat of a rarity because so many only exist for Windows and Mac), but it's available only as a Snap package and not as RPM or Flatpak. Having Snap for Mageia would really help.
Ping! Is it possible to add it to Cauldron at least? I tried to build 2.43.3, but it failed.
