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.
They list the mime type Red Hat uses as the proper mime type.

now changed said webpage in accordance to what I said earlier. This has also
been reported in Ogg Traffic earlier, see
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
Added, will be in 2.1.14-1.
