Bug#386335: xdg-utils in desktop task
xdg-utils is a package which provides third-party applications the
ability to do certain common desktop tasks in a desktop
environment-independent way. For example, opening files and composing
emails in the user's preferred applications.
xdg-utils is a part of freedesktop.org's Portland project. An example
of an application which uses xdg-utils is Google Earth.
I've packaged xdg-utils and made some changes to make it better
integrated with Debian. Therefore, I think it would be a good idea to
include xdg-utils in the desktop task so that third-party apps will
have good integration with Debian in default installations.
The package is not very big and has no strict dependencies.
