Name        : shared-mime-info
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 1.2
Release     : 7.fc20
URL         : http://freedesktop.org/Software/shared-mime-info
Summary     : Shared MIME information database
Description :
This is the freedesktop.org shared MIME info database.

Many programs and desktops use the MIME system to represent the types of
files. Frequently, it is necessary to work out the correct MIME type for
a file. This is generally done by examining the file's name or contents,
and looking up the correct MIME type in a database.

Update Information:

* Support PKGSYSTEM_ENABLE_FSYNC environment variable, allows to opt-out of safe (but slow) fdatasync writes.
* Allow (but ignore) new -n option supported by newer versions.
