Description Linus Walleij 2003-02-11 17:22:14 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
The application/ogg MIME Type has been registered with the IANA, see
http://www.iana.org/assignments/media-types/application/ Its corresponding RFC
is approved by the IESG and is only awaiting number assignment and publication.
So application/x-ogg should be replaced with application/ogg in the mime.types
file and similar (magic) files.

application/x-ogg is associated with the filename extension .ogg in RedHat, but
does not appear in the Apache source file, so I guess this is the place to
complain, otherwise send me upstreams, thanks.
Comment 1 Michael A. Peters 2003-03-05 07:45:20 EST
They list the mime type Red Hat uses as the proper mime type.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2003-03-05 22:05:56 EST
And, until upstream recommends something else, I doubt we'll change it.
Comment 3 Linus Walleij 2003-03-06 13:33:45 EST
I represent the Ogg Vorbis community in these issues. We ("the upstream") have
now changed said webpage in accordance to what I said earlier. This has also
been reported in Ogg Traffic earlier, see
Comment 4 Ralph Giles 2003-05-16 19:49:03 EDT
Just as an update, our rfc documenting the Ogg format and the application/ogg
mimetype have been released  by the IETF. Please see
http://ietf.org/rfc/rfc3534.txt or a description of the mimetype and
http://ietf.org/rfc/rfc3533.txt on the ogg file format itself.

Please do update your mimetypes entry; this will really help us move the the
migration through.
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2003-05-18 19:56:08 EDT
Added, will be in 2.1.14-1.
