Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 441587
Allow modular gnome-default-applications.xml files for package drop-ins
Last modified: 2009-06-08 06:03:58 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently the information about the alternative applications for various
services is in one monolithic file.
If a package wants to add itself to the list of alternatives it currently needs
to edit this file. Ideally gnome-default-applications-properties would scan a
folder with snippets that packages would drop of.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It's a good idea, but it's a better idea to have upstream.
Also mention which package would use that.
Could you post the upstream URL for the bug/post? Thanks!
One package that would use that would be mplayer. Would you want to add it to
gnome-default-applications.xml until upstream decides on a whether to use a
modular setup or not?
I would have hoped you'd create the bugzilla, but whatever:
