Description Axel Thimm 2008-04-08 16:30:48 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.
Comment 2 Axel Thimm 2008-04-09 23:11:45 EDT

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?
