Hello,

the snap package always lacks behind by some time.
At the time of writing (2019-11-13), Musescore 3.3.0 is available, but as snap it is only 3.2.3.

The maintainer page does not mention maintainers.
https://musescore.org/en/handbook/developers-handbook/references/distri…

Although this was mentioned earlier:
https://musescore.org/de/node/291352

The reason I'd like to use the snap is:
* Automatic updates
* easy "revert"
* integration into system menus
* when I use the appimage installer/launcher for the existing appimages, It will create a new appimage
launcher leaving two indistinguishable versions behind.

It isn't us doing those, you need to go to the folks doing snap.
The MuseScore team only provides AppImages, Max and Windows versions, nothing else, everything else comes from some distribution maintainers, which may even be unknown to the MuseScore team

I reported this as a copyright / trademark infringement on snapcraft.io, because the account should not be verified as "official musescore release" then.

I linked t his issue for reference and mentioned your comment.
