Apologies for the rapid turnaround. I ran into a few issues kicking
off the import job that runs regularly, due to the snap restructuring.

* Changes from 0.2.1 to 0.2.2:

- Bump launchpadlib dependency to 1.10.5 to fix an error with oauth on

- Build xdelta from source.

- Build launchpadlib from source to patch in a workaround for a
encoding error (LP: #1709573 and LP: #1685962 for context and tracking
it in upstream launchpadlib.)

- Fix snap install of xdelta3.

- Fix snap install of xz-utils.
