Dropped attachments Fwd: [Gavin (JIRA): [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-3724) attachments sent get dropped without notification to either sender or receiving list]

Rejecting to the OP doesn't seem to be an option. (Rejecting to
a constant address /is/ an option, but it'd be all rejections, not just
'bad attachment' rejections.)

Seems the option we do have is to ask for some more filename extensions
to be allowed.

So, can we compile a list of extensions we'd like to allow on

> ------------------------------
> I dont think at this stage we'll apply fixes globally. And moderators will not appreciate sending all rejected messages to them (you can not say afaict 'send rejected messages with attachments' , its all rejected messages get sent or they all get dropped.)
> so, I would say to cure this for Subversion is to tell us what you want to do there? I can removed some MIME types from the mimeremove file for the dev/user lists if it will help.
> Note that .diff and .patch files are not categrized and dropping say application/octet-stream will not help in these cases (.dump it will)

> > When people send attachments to dev_at_svn it commonly happens that the attachments don't reach the list and neither the sender nor the list is notified (by the MTAs) of the dropped/missing attachment. Asking people to re-send with a *.txt (or *.zip) extension allows the attachment to get through.
> > This issue requests that attachments either get through or either the sender or the list is notified of their having been stripped.
