Lintian ReportsBETA


This package contains a file named mimeinfo.cache, possibly compressed, in /usr/share/applications. This file is generated automatically by update-desktop-database when a package containing .desktop files associated to MIME types is installed. Some upstream build systems create it automatically, but it must not be included in a package since it needs to be generated dynamically based on the installed .desktop files on the system.

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.163. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.114.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit fac7222. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check mimeinfo.
