NOTE: This Draft would be for fedora 19 and newer (and possibly anywhere we could patch shared-mime-info package to accept the new -n option). Anything else (like EPEL) would likely need to keep the old guideline.


Use this when a package drops an XML file in %{_datadir}/mime/packages.

/bin/touch --no-create %{_datadir}/mime/packages &>/dev/null || :

if [ $1 -eq 0 ] ; then
  /usr/bin/update-mime-database %{_datadir}/mime &> /dev/null || :

/usr/bin/update-mime-database %{?fedora:-n} %{_datadir}/mime &> /dev/null || :

Note that similarly to the gtk-update-icon-cache code, these scriptlets should be run only if the user has update-mime-info installed and without a specific Requires: shared-mime-info. If shared-mime-info is not installed, update-mime-database won't be run when this package is installed. This does not matter because it will be run when the shared-mime-info package is installed.
