The gnome MIME mess



I would like to know what is currently the "official" way for a
packager to add new MIME types and the correct corresponding
application bindings to Gnome in general, and Nautilus in particular. I
thought it was just a matter of dropping the right foo.keys and
foo.mime files into /usr/share/mime-info, but it turns out this has
pretty much zero effect on anything. Instead one has to edit the
somewhat obscure /usr/share/mime/packages/freedesktop.org.xml file and
call the update-mime-database command.

I understand this is being worked on in the next version of Gnome, but
for the time being, how is one supposed to do this from an RPM spec
file ?
