With László Böszörményi we adopted mime-support, which was maintained since September 1996 by Brian White. It is the first package of standard priority that I take care of. It gives me the same feeling as when side wheels were removed from my bicycle, a long, long time ago.
We transferred the source package on Alioth, and uploaded a first update allowing the extraction of information for the mailcap file directly from Desktop files. I think that the next two works will be to resolve the bug about the handling of PHP files, and to update the mime.types base, if possible in synergy with Fedora or other distributions.
