[Bug 1518053] Re: xdg-mime can read .config/ defaults but can never set them


Hey Chad! Thanks for this patch. This mostly look good to me (apart from a small typo in changelog, mind changing it?)
I would love though to have more rationale on why you dropped the other ubuntu patches (even if you told you have done it on purpose) for this merge and .

Also, your debdiff is against 1.1.0~rc3+git20150907-1ubuntu2 (which is
the vivid version) where we have 1.1.0~rc3+git20150907-1ubuntu3 in
xenial since the 11/20, mind rebasing on that?

And for extra bonus, providing a second debdiff against the debian version would rock!
Thanks a lot :) (setting it as incomplete meanwhile)

  xdg-mime can read .config/ defaults but can never set them

Status in xdg-utils package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  mimeapps.list has changed

  It used to be in .local/share/applications/ . Now it's in .config/ .

  "xdg-mime query default" reads from both locations, but no "xdg-mime
  default NEWSETTING" can ever overwrite a setting in
  .config/mimeapps.list .  It writes to
  .local/share/applications/mimeapps.list only.
