Maybe the R tarball could take care of installing this mime type by itself ?

I do not belong to R core team, so I do not know. I will file the bug to R and
tell how it goes.

Any news? Querying the R bug tracking system for "shared-mime-info" didn't match
Comment 5 Vaidotas Zemlys 2005-11-03 00:42:03 UTC
I wrote an email to the R developers list, since nobody replied, I dropped the
whole thing. After your letter, I filed the bug, hopefully now, someone will reply.

Thanks for filing it. Just for the reference, it's available under:

From what I can see, the developers are not against inclusion but the patch
against R still has to be revised.

mimetype for R scripts

><?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

Don't make a separate file out of those types, they should be integrated in

><mime-type type="text/x-R">
>  <comment>R script</comment>
>  <comment xml:lang="de">R-Skript</comment>

don't put the lang in here, but mark those as translatable (_comment instead of

>  <comment xml:lang="el">Πρόγραμμα εντολών R</comment>
>  <comment xml:lang="fi">R-skripti</comment>
>  <comment xml:lang="no">R-skript</comment>
>  <glob pattern="*.R"/>

Is there a magic that could be used to detect those files?

The last change to this bug was exactly a year ago. Ping?
