Bug Description

Asked a question and suggested to report a bug - https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xdg-utils/+question/272333

Copy of text also here:
There is xdg-open bug (https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92440) which seems to be fixed in xdg-utils 1.1.0 rc2 and newer - it seems that Ubuntu 15.10 will have rc3. Older Ubuntu versions (http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=xdg-utils&searchon=names&suite=all&section=all) do have still rc1 with that xdg-open bug. Could not find any PPA either to upgrade xdg-utils in existing and yet supported releases. Would kindly ask any feedback whether there are any plans to backport fixed xdg-utils into older Ubuntu releases?

Mentioned questions has been posted also here - http://askubuntu.com/questions/684650/xdg-utils-backporting

At least supported versions of Ubuntu (and its derivates), especially supported LTS-versions, would be expected to be backported.

Thank you for your bug report, it looks like that's fixed in the current version so closing the main bug, specific serie targets can be opened in needed, if you would like to see the fix backported to trusty could you follow https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates and at least at a test case so the bug can be confirmed and the fix verified, thanks!
