The specification describes how the static list shipped with the distribution and describing the application to use for a mimetype will be changed to a dynamic one

Release Note

This section should include a paragraph describing the end-user impact of this change. It is meant to be included in the release notes of the first release in which it is implemented. (Not all of these will actually be included in the release notes, at the release manager's discretion; but writing them is a useful exercise.)

It is mandatory.


The static list used currently doesn't allow distributors to change a default application easily (vendors installing a commercial DVD players probably want this one to be used by default)

User stories


The priority order will be:


There is no migration required, a new cache will be used and the previous defaults.list still used for compatibility
