while upgrading libreoffice-common to version libreoffice-common-3.6.4-3 the following line appeared in pacman's output:
( 4/15) Aktualisiere libreoffice-common 100%
/tmp/alpm_2NDWMR/.INSTALL: Zeile 27: xdg-icon-resource: Kommando nicht gefunden. ( Command not found. )
Is it a bug?

xdg-icon-resource belongs to extra/xdg-utils which is a dependency of libreoffice-common. Do you have xdg-utils installed?
Thanks, now i see what happened. Xdg-utils is not installed, because it was replaced by the 'mimi' package. (created by taylorchu https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=135146 )
Provides is not really true, because the xdg-icon-resource is not part of the mimi package. Do you think i should forward this to taylorchu?
As far as the borked install command goes, i think i should be fine, libreoffice works as before.
Yes, most likely mimi should be changed to not list that in the provides array. If it does list it, it should replicate the behavior of all included tools/executables, or at the very least, it should provide all those executables even if they do nothing (eg an empty script).
I suspect many who prefer mimi to xdg-utils would not want the behavior of xdg-icon-resource to be replicated, so perhaps an empty script would be the way to go - but I'm not sure if one could then say it 'provides' that.
