The shared-mime-info package contains the core database of common types and the update-mime-database command used to extend it. It requires glib2 to be installed for building the update command. Additionally, it uses intltool for translations, though this is only a dependency for the maintainers. This database is translated at Transifex.

See the Shared MIME Info Specification for more information about the database.
