Hi Josselin,

with no mention of a team or of the VCSes in debian/control, is is impossible
to guess that the packages are team-maintained...  Please consider making it
more proeminent.

For the mime-support package, I am tempted to generate /etc/mime.types from the
freedesktop.org.xml in shared-mime-info, if it is maintained in close
adequation with the IANA's definitions.  If I would like to contact the
pkg-freedesktop team in the future, what is its address ?  The Alioth project
has no mailing list...  Or would it be better to discuss this upstream ?
