Description Jan Kaluža 2014-02-12 07:37:13 UTC
To be able to achieve possible future RFEs and backports like Bug 966953 in RHEL7, we should increase MAXDESC size from 64 bytes to 80 bytes for MIME types as is already done in newer File versions. Without this fix, it will be harder to backport some of the future patches into RHEL7 from File upstream.
