Creating an ubuntu snap package for gatk

I would like to create an ubuntu snap package ( for gatk, to make it easy for myself and others to install and run gatk like any other program. However, the licence forbids re-distribution of the program without prior written permission.

I was wondering whether it would be possible to get permission to re-distribute gatk as a snap package in the ubuntu store. This would make it much easier for users and sys-admins to install and use gatk. It is trivial to add the gatk licence to the snap-package so that users still have to explicitly accept the licence before they are allowed to install the package.
