    Summary: Shared MIME-Info Specification
    Description: 
    This is the freedesktop.org shared MIME info database.
    
    Many programs and desktops use the MIME system to represent the types of
    files. Frequently, it is necessary to work out the correct MIME type for
    a file. This is generally done by examining the file's name or contents,
    and looking up the correct MIME type in a database.
    
    For interoperability, it is useful for different programs to use the
    same database so that different programs agree on the type of a file,
    and new rules for determining the type apply to all programs.
    
    This specification attempts to unify the type-guessing systems currently
    in use by GNOME, KDE and ROX. Only the name-to-type and contents-to-type
    mappings are covered by this spec; other MIME type information, such as
    the default handler for a particular type, or the icon to use to display
    it in a file manager, are not covered since these are a matter of style.
    
    In addition, freedesktop.org provides a shared database in this format
    to avoid inconsistencies between desktops. This database has been
    created by converting the existing KDE and GNOME databases to the new
    format and merging them together.
