Future of shared-mime-info in Fedora

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hello Fedorans, Bastien,

I have noticed that the shared-mime-info package was orphaned couple days ago.

Bastien, AFAIK you were the primary point of contact in Fedora and I also see you are the RHEL 8 default bugzilla assignee.

Considering the following commit:


I've disregarded the idea the the package was orphaned by accident.

I also see that GNOME mime types have been moved away from the package (on rawhide only):


I always considered shared-mime-info an important package, however I don't see it in comps. Maybe it is no longer that important?

A repoquery reveals ~50 packages that require it including PackageKit, Thunar (Xfce), some NetworkManager packages, kdelibs (KDE)...

A recursive repoquery yields ~ 6650 packages.

I've taken the orphaned package for now to avoid any disruption (and a totally unreadable orphans report), but I don't really understand the Fedora package, it has a manually created source without any comment explaining where is this from:


Bastien, could you please give me a hint about this file? Thanks


The package technically has 8 co-maintainers and a sig, but I don't put much hopes into the crowd there considering they haven't touched the package in years.

Are there any interested Fedora packages that understand mime info better than I do


PS There is an interesting file-ownership problem reported in Bugzilla https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1486468 - I plan to discuss this later on the packaging mailing list as well.
