Hi Stuart,

Are there any plans? No, but, as part of the Kea 1.6 milestone we are planning to create RPM and Debian packages to make Kea easier to install. See https://gitlab.isc.org/isc-projects/kea/issues/425. 

We do have a request for a Docker image (https://gitlab.isc.org/isc-projects/kea/issues/559), which we added to 1.6 as a stretch goal.  We haven’t had any requests yet that I am aware of for SNAP packages. It is fine to ask on this list, but if you want to propose a new feature, it is good to open an issue in our issue tracker. If a bunch of other users also chime in on the request, it will help us understand the relative priority.  We don’t have snaps today for BIND either - and I thought they only worked for a few OSes.  Can you explain in the issue, why you prefer SNAPs to other package formats?

To open a new issue, go to: https://gitlab.isc.org/isc-projects/kea/issues
You will have to make an account to participate on Gitlab.
