Subject [jira] [Created] (MNG-6387) Pom files should have a dedicated mime type registered ("application/pom+xml" or similar)
Date Fri, 30 Mar 2018 10:11:00 GMT
Alex Dubov created MNG-6387:
-------------------------------

             Summary: Pom files should have a dedicated mime type registered ("application/pom+xml"
or similar)
                 Key: MNG-6387
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG-6387
             Project: Maven
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: POM
            Reporter: Alex Dubov


For the sake of convenience working with ever growing abundance of packages, and, thus, pom
files, is not it time to give the humble pom file its own, dedicated mime type (something
to the tune of "application/pom+xml")?

Presently, the fact that pom files don't have a dedicated mime type causes all kinds of minor
but annoying issues in all kinds of least expected places.

Considering that registering a mime type with IANA is a pretty straightforward process and
that pom files are widely used for all kinds of automation purposes (and not exclusively by
maven anymore), I, on behalf of the wider community, urge you to consider registering a dedicated
pom mime type.
