Description of problem:
xz is a new extention for a compression algorithm which is likely to become very common (it's used to compress rpm payload in Fedora and several upstreams have already adopted it for their releases)
Infortunately, /etc/mime.types does not know about it. Please fix this
GNOME uses application/x-xz for it
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
application/x-xz is also mentioned in http://tukaani.org/xz/xz-file-format.txt
Done upstream, a package release will follow soonish. I don't see why this would be critical to have in F-12 GA, and we're already in a freeze so removing target blocker. It will be shipped as an update to F-12 (and quite possibly earlier versions as well).
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
