Description Rex Dieter 2004-04-27 13:14:47 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040322

Description of problem:
Both kdelibs and openoffice.org can provide the mimelnk files
/usr/share/mimelnk/application/vnd.sun.xml.calc.desktop
/usr/share/mimelnk/application/vnd.sun.xml.draw.desktop
/usr/share/mimelnk/application/vnd.sun.xml.impress.desktop
/usr/share/mimelnk/application/vnd.sun.xml.writer.desktop

At present, FC's/rawhide's openoffice.org rpm owns these.  I would
argue that kdelibs should be the rightful owner of these files:
1.  mimelnk files are used *only* in kde
2.  the kdelibs versions of these files include more translations
3.  the kdelibs versions of these files include hints to help koffice
to import/export openoffice files.
4.  if openoffice.org is not installed, then these mimetypes are
undefined in kde (potentially crippling koffice's ability
import/export openoffice files)


Version-Release number of selected component: 
(versions up to and including)
openoffice.org-1.1.1-4
kdelibs-3.2.2-3

OOo no longer installs KDE mimelink files.  Besides, KDE should be
using the .desktop files to figure out what to do.  But anyway, ball
in KDE packages court now.
