    initial v1  
    33When so, this ticket could be retired (the create-symlink-at-install would be taken care of, and the remove-symlink-at-uninstall is not all that important), sparing us excessive Tracker complexity..

    5 Specifically for the mimeset example cited, I'd say the preferred way is to create mime_db entries within home; e.g. for us ever since we've been shipping TT on Haiku PM we include a package that creates relative paths `data/mime_db/audio/aiff` ..etc with the mimeset-style attributes we need (Composer, Intro, Outro ..etc), saves me having to run the .sh script we had been using for a decade that calls setmime in extenso, very elegant and handy. Maybe there are other cases where writing files outside of the packagefs hierarchy can be replaced with another mechanism, as we'll probably want to keep that to a minimum.. Anyway for this one ticket, yea there are simpler ways to go, i'd rather keep this one low priority.

Maybe there are other cases where writing files outside of the packagefs hierarchy can be replaced with another mechanism (EDIT: meant to say: writing in the global MIMEdb can be agreably replaced with writing to packagefs's config/data/mime_db, and probably there are other cases where it's not actually necessary to  get non-packaged), as we'll probably want to keep that to a minimum.. Anyway for this one ticket, yea there are simpler ways to go, i'd rather keep this one low priority.
