[Subclipse-users] MIME types

Hi all,

After two questions on the Subclipse list/group today, I started reading
about how Subversion handles mime types. It seems like I have to
provide it with a mime-types-mapping file. A file like that is present
in Gnome, though. Why doesn’t Subversion consider this file by default?
 I suppose KDE has a similar ssystem set up? Why ask the user to
configure this file by hand?

Second question: is it useful to enter more specific MIME types then the
generic application/octet-stream? Does it make any difference anywhere
if it says image/png or application/x-tex? The latter might be
problematic, I suppose, since it doesn’t say ‘text’, although a TeX file
is text only and should not be excluded from contextual merge.

Cheers, H.
