Freeze exception for app-install-data 2008.07.28

Yesterday, app-install-data 2008.07.28 has been uploaded.

I would like to request a freeze exception for it because it is simply
a collection of desktop & icon files already in Lenny, together with some meta

This new release also improves the automatic codec installation support in
Gstreamer applications, because some codecs have been moved between the
packages, and the old app-install-data still contains the old package names.

Another reason is the more clarified copyright information, which now provides
detailed information about the origin of each icon (in README.icons), and the
debian/copyright file is now machine-interpretable.
