Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: UI/UX:


Use local mime.types for Windows systems, since they usually
don't have one installed, and the default types are not really

Note: the included mime.types file is taken from a Debian system. It should be fairly complete.

  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset
  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Design decision needed

This is probably not worth it. It's a reasonably large file to add just to support the development server. If somebody really wants to serve funky mime types via auto-detection, it's only a few minutes to set up a real webserver.

So, at the moment, I'm -1 on this, I think.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

In the time since this was opened, I can't say that I've seen a huge (or, really, any) demand for inclusion of a file like this. So I don't think my opinion's changed in the last 8 months.
