a patch: removing magic

The magic for Lisp files contains search for "(if" - this can confuse file(1) in this case and I can imagine some others (like natural language English text perhaps). Removing this entry.
Comment 2 Daniel Novotny 2009-07-23 10:03:38 EDT
is it sufficient to fix this in rawhide, or do you want me to fix this also in F11?
Comment 3 Daniel Novotny 2009-07-23 10:17:53 EDT
fixed in rawhide now: file-5.03-6.fc12
Comment 4 Michal Nowak 2009-07-23 10:32:54 EDT
Rawhide's fine for me.
