curl snap package

Hi All,

After spending some time, I created a curl snap package, which is available
via the snapstore.

Since I assume there might be some limitations in what is possible I have only
published it to the edge channel, and will promote to stable once it works for
most use cases.

To install (assuming that the snap daemon is installed) issue the following

    sudo snap install curl --channel edge

For any problems with the snap, please open an issue on github (https://

Please do note that since it is a snap, it has to comply with the same
(apparmor) restrictions all snaps have to deal with. Currently write access is
only possible to the home directory of the user invoking the snap. If this is
an issue for the majority of use cases, I can make a request to allow
arbitrary access). It will also access the default config file, if available,
under $HOME/.curlrc
Using the shell redirect (>) it can still write anywhere as it ultimately it
is the shell doing the writing in that case and not the snapped curl.
