I should probably have mentioned that before, but there's now a test
suite in shared-mime-info CVS courtesy of Matthias Clasen. You'll need
to have xdgmime checked out and compile at the same level as
shared-mime-info. Running make in CVS will run the test suite.
All changes to the freedesktop.org.xml.in file should have the an entry
in the test suite.
I'll update the HACKING file to reflect that.
