Description

There is now (and has been for nearly a year) a snap of ScummVM available in the snap store. There's been some hundreds of downloads of it from there with no promotion. It would be awesome to get this listed on the ScummVM download page. [1]

Having a snap makes it super easy for users of snap-enabled systems to install ScummVM, and get automatic updates when the app in the store is updated.

Some suggested text for the download page, with perhaps the words 'snap-enabled' linking to https://snapcraft.io/docs/core/install:-

"On snap-enabled systems, install ScummVM with:- snap install scummvm".

The snap was uploaded by an enthusiastic community member, and if wanted the ownership of that package in the store could be handed over to the ScummVM core team for updates.

This is probably more of a Wiki thing.

The problem with promoting these repositories on the download page is that they're usually outdated compared to our own binaries.

I'm going to leave this as pending for comments, but as a wontfix for now.

Actually that's not entirely true, we do mention apt in the downloads page but it's barely noticeable....
