It used to a direct copy of the Workstation (GNOME) defaults. Now it's a copy
of nothing, and folks that care about it can ask the new maintainer for

The GNOME/Workstation defaults now live in the gnome-desktop3 package. I'd
encourage other desktops to ship their own mimeapps.list files to set defaults,
and leave the mimeapps.list in shared-mime-info well alone (it shouldn't
be needed, but "it broke things" not to have, and I never actually knew what
it broke).
