Description Johannes Rohr 2004-02-01 17:24:39 UTC
gnome-vfs-mime-magic does not correctly identify mrproject/planner and
gdesklets file. They are all determined to be "text/xml".

I'm attaching the relevant patches from Debian.

The Mr Project/Planner patch is already in the Gnome CVS :

        * gnome-vfs-mime-magic: fix detection of Mr Project/Planner files
        (Closes: #130662)

Comment 4 Sebastien Bacher 2004-02-01 17:35:02 UTC
Updating the title
Comment 5 Bastien Nocera 2004-05-03 10:38:45 UTC
I can't commit that, there isn't a entry for the gdesklets.
Please run "./" before sending in patches, to verify their sanity.
Comment 6 Bastien Nocera 2004-05-29 18:22:19 UTC
Setting to NEEDINFO.
Comment 7 Johannes Rohr 2006-03-03 08:22:06 UTC
Hi, this is probably obsolete now, given the adoption of the XDG mime standard.
