Create a snap of apport for Ubuntu Core

Registered by Brian Murray on 2017-03-14

A snap of apport should be created which will create apport formatted crash reports of crashes on Ubuntu Core. This will included crashes from packages in the core image, or crashes from other snaps. The crash reports can then be manually retraced by developers with the debug symbols of the snaps.
