Cool, thanks for the notice.

I'm happy if you would like to continue maintaining the ccache snap.

One thing that you could consider documenting on
https://snapcraft.io/ccache is that there seems to be a slight
overhead of executing ccache via snap (0.02 seconds on my system), so
for scenarios where ccache is called very frequently the snap overhead
is small but clearly measurable.
