Package: exo-utils
Version: 0.10.2-4
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
I chose a preferred application for text/plain.
This modifed my .config/mimeapps.list which became like this:
[Default Applications]
[Added Associations]
By this all libre office flat document became associated to mousepad.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
I removed the two lines corresponding to text/plain.
I can now open application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.text-flat-xml with libreoffice writer and other flat document with the right libre office application
But, I lost my default application for text/plain

   * What was the outcome of this action?
   * What outcome did you expect instead?
I expect to have the ability to choose my default application for text/plain without impact on libre office flat document

I'm not sure that the package to target was exo-utils. Maybe it is another one. Feel free to correct, if I was wrong.
