Package: epiphany-browser
Version: 1.2.5-1
Severity: wishlist


ephiphany does not honor the Debian mime-system right now it seems.[1]
It would be nice if epiphany was represented in /etc/mailcap as well, as
this would allow for running it from arbitrary applications.

Adding a file debian/mime (or debian/ephiphany-browser.mime, didn't
check) and running dh_installmime in the binary-arch target should
suffice. This could be the content of the file:

text/html; /usr/bin/epiphany %s; description=HTML Text; test=test -n "$DISPLAY";  nametemplate=%s.html; priority=5
text/xml; /usr/bin/epiphany %s; description=XML Text; test=test -n "$DISPLAY";  nametemplate=%s.xml; priority=5

(not sure about the XML bit)



[1] I have to admit that I did not care a lot about it either until now.
What bugs me is that I'm using epiphany for all my web-browsing, while
mutt fires up mozilla-browser on html-attachments.
