Description Todd Berman 2004-03-21 20:50:28 UTC
some of these might be in the db already, as they cover some generic web
services stuff.

Some of these are also flexible on what actual mime-type they get, not super

attached the .xml file we install with MonoDevelop

we updated this file, here is the new copy
Comment 4 Reinout van Schouwen 2005-09-24 04:03:57 UTC
Is this bug the reason that Nautilus still calls Mono .exe files a DOS/Windows
Comment 5 Pino Toscano 2006-03-23 01:20:44 UTC
Why is:
   <mime-type type="text/x-js">
    <comment xml:lang="en">JScript source</comment>
    <glob pattern="*.js"/>
Afaik, the .js extension is used also for JavaScript files.
Comment 6 Sebastian Dröge (slomo) 2006-03-27 20:52:48 UTC
  <mime-type type="application/x-config">
    <comment xml:lang="en">Mono application config</comment>
    <glob pattern="*.config"/>

the .config files are in no way Mono specific so I would suggest using something
more general. Maybe "CLR application config"
Comment 7 Sebastian Dröge (slomo) 2006-04-13 20:03:17 UTC
Also the addition of boo would be nice...
It's text/x-boo with .boo as extension

Don't make a separate file out of those types, they should be integrated in

>  <mime-type type="text/x-csharp">
>    <comment xml:lang="en">C# source</comment>

don't put the lang in here, the default is en, but mark those as translatable
(_comment instead of comment)

>    <glob pattern="*.cs"/>
>  </mime-type>

There's already text/x-csharp in the DB.

>  <mime-type type="text/x-msil">
>    <comment xml:lang="en">IL source</comment>
>    <glob pattern="*.il"/>

You need to use acronym and expanded-acronym when you have acronyms in your
type names.

>  <mime-type type="text/x-js">
>    <comment xml:lang="en">JScript source</comment>
>    <glob pattern="*.js"/>
>  </mime-type>

This is definitely too narrow a definition, there's already
application/x-javascript for *.js

>  <mime-type type="application/x-config">
>    <comment xml:lang="en">Mono application config</comment>
>    <glob pattern="*.config"/>
>  </mime-type>

That's far too narrow a definition as well.
