Description of problem:
The following is reported during an installation:
Error in file "/usr/share/applications/fedora-gnumeric.desktop": "zz-application/zz-winassoc-xls" is an invalid MIME type ("zz-application" is an unregistered media type)
This is likely an old entry but something started to care.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This bug also affects Fedora 13 (gnumeric-1.10.0-1.fc13.i686)
and earlier releases
*** Bug 587620 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
The problem is in the checker, not in Gnumeric.
"zz-application/zz-winassoc-xls" is real mime type. See, for example,
http://filetonic.com/blog/tag/file-extension/. It is unregistered and
probably violates a spec or two somewhere, but it is real. When the
spec and reality disagree, the spec is due for service.
Upstream bug is here https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=619303
I am not sure why it is WONTFIX as opposed to NOTABUG.

It is clearly a BUG. Maybe not that crucial after all but it is there. Where and how it should be fixed is another question.
OK, this BUG now starts to interfere with me updating gnumeric:
Similar to 587566.
I've filed a bug upstream for this:
gnumeric-1.10.17-1.fc16.x86_64 is affected, too.
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fixed in gnumeric-1.11.5-1.fc17.x86_64.
