%{_bindir}/update-mime-database %{_datadir}/mime &> /dev/null

But is missing
Requires(post): desktop-file-utils
Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2006-02-10 12:19:52 EST
Nevermind... update-mime-database comes from *this* package (shared-mime-info),
not desktop-file-utils.
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2006-03-30 10:16:05 EST
OK, brainfart at first attempt, let's try again.  

and discussions on the FE mailing list (I can dig up references if you want), it
was agreed that it is wrong/wasteful that *every* rpm that includes application
.desktop files with
entries must include
Requires(post): desktop-file-utils
Requires(postun): desktop-file-utils

Instead, it was proposed that some core bit of any desktop that supports the use
of shared-mime-info (like Gnome) should itself include
Requires: desktop-file-utils

Now, I'm not sure if adding the Requires to shared-mime-info is the best place
for it, but it should be somewhere.

redhat-menus nowadays depends on it, maybe that's enough?
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2006-04-09 13:10:40 EDT
Ville, yeah, it's a round-about way to get to the same result...
Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2006-07-24 16:55:10 EDT
I'm content with the Req being redhat-menus, so let's close this out (and I'll
update the wiki to drop the extraneous Requires bits)
