I used snap to install the latest version of lxd on the stable channel. But it doesn’t seem to point to the latest code in the stable-3.0 branch.

output of snap info lxd is

However on a different post @freeekanayaka says that the snap ID J60k4JY0HppjwOjW8dZdYc8obXKxujRu points to the commit 24c3713d7. Which is not the latest commit.


"snap ID J60k4JY0HppjwOjW8dZdYc8obXKxujRu, which I believe matches the latest commit in our stable-3.0 branch (rev 24c3713d7). @stgraber?"

How do I make sure that snap installs lxd from the stable-3.0 branch with the latest commit. If I have installed it earlier, how do I update it to include new commits? Do I wait for 3.0.1 or snap refresh does the trick?

3.0/edge is what tracks the (untested) stable-3.0 branch on Github.
3.0/stable tracks the latest release of 3.0 (3.0.0) + some careful chosen cherry-picks.
