   chemical/x-kinemage             kin

.. and probably others, from URL's like the one supplied in this bug-report, 
and others on the web..

anyway, hope this helps!

(and also, thanks for all the hard work, guys/gals! 7.2 is great!)

Comment 1 Jeff Stern 2002-01-09 15:48:06 UTC
sorry, forgot about java web archives. so:

java archives:
   application/x-java-archive      jar war
   application/x-jar               jar war

also, there already is a powerpoint type in /etc/mime.types, but it's a ppt 

   application/vnd.ms-powerpoint   ppt

so it should just be augmented:

   application/vnd.ms-powerpoint   ppt pps

Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2002-01-12 18:09:19 UTC
audio/prs.sid      sid


Comment 3 Need Real Name 2002-03-23 00:10:03 UTC
not to mention xls == application/vnd.ms-excel.

go to http://cvs.apache.org/viewcvs.cgi/httpd-2.0/docs/conf/mime.types for
apache's latest mime types (which it appears the file that redhat copies for its
mime.types).  it'd be nice if redhat would just use this file and munge the rpm

apache says that ftp://ftp.iana.org/in-notes/iana/assignments/media-types/ is
the place to go for the "official" mimetypes, but it appears to be dead.

Comment 4 Warren Togami 2002-06-25 07:32:56 UTC
application/x-ogg     ogg

It is mentioned at http://www.xiph.org/archives/vorbis/200008/0040.html by a
xiph.org person.

Comment 5 Warren Togami 2002-09-02 23:30:22 UTC
Please bump this up to null.  It still would be nice to have these in the
default mime.types.

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2003-02-07 21:22:59 UTC
synced with upstream apache in 2.1.13-1.
