Subject Incorrect MIME Types set on Mirrors
Date Mon, 28 Oct 2002 15:13:42 GMT

Not sure who to report this to, so thought I would start with the 
authors of the mirror page.

Several of your mirrors are using text/plain mime types on .msi 
installer files. This causes Mozilla, Netscape 6/7, and other Gecko 
based browsers to display the content rather than download it when 
clicking on the link.

For example,, and are configured 
incorrectly as text/plain. They should report application/octet-stream.

Can you pass the word to your mirror admins and ask them to configure 
the mime types on all their content correctly?
