I don't think it likely that the TC will want to overrule the Release
Team's decision on this point.
So I hereby propose the following TC resolution:
1. The Technical Committee agrees with Neil McGovern's analysis of
the situation regarding evince's missing mime type entry.
2. If changes are desirable to our system for dealing with mime
type entries and desktop files, including changes to policy or
additional automation, these should be made via the usual
development and policy amendment processes. It is now too
late to do this for wheezy.
3. We do not disagree with the Release Team's assessment that
the failure of the evince package to provide a mime type
entry is a release critical bug.
4. We therefore decline to overrule the Release Team.
