snap version outdated
S3 - Major
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.
Although this was mentioned earlier:
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

No, it is not.

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.
See description to https://github.com/musescore/MuseScore/pull/5762 by @pachulo:
> Back in the day @lasconic registered the musescore name on the store (https://snapcraft.io/musescore) and gave me rights to administer it.
@lasconic (now @Nicolas) was one of MuseScore's co-founders, so it appears that the account is (or was) official, or at least somewhat "officially recognised" even if the actual snap packages were made by a member of the community.
Of course that was a while ago. I don't think the current in-house team has had much to do with the Snap package or the Snapcraft account.
Oh that looks great! Does that mean we finally get up-to-date snaps? :)
Just wanted to inform that, while still not being something official, with some help from the community https://forum.snapcraft.io/t/call-for-help-maintenance-of-the-musescore… we should again have up-to-date snaps.
