This branch contains the work to support snap packages (on the 0.7-series). The mailing list thread on this work and the rationale starts here:

The code can only be converted into a snap after it has been versioned (versions that have had dist/makedist run on them). Once merged, the expectation would be that snapcraft would be run in the folder of the extracted tar.gz after it is released.

You can test it out as follows:
1) Branch the code
2) Run ./dist/makedist
3) Extract the resulting .tar.gz to ~/Temp/duplicity-
4) Within ~/Temp/duplicity-, run 'snapcraft'
5) 'duplicity_0.7.0.999_amd64.snap' will be in the folder.
6) You can install this using 'snap install duplicity_0.7.0.999_amd64.snap --classic --dangerous'
7) Test you are using this duplicity: $ which duplicity
8) Test the version: $ duplicity --version

See also the duplicity part of deja dup, which I have come across since writing this:

* Merged in lp:~mterry/duplicity/pydrive-root-0.7
  - Just a tiny fix to clean up the temporary file we create to find the root ID.
    It's a little surprising for the user if they wind up with this file called
    "i_am_in_root" that they don't know where it came from. Almost sounds like
    they were hacked.
