Subject [jira] Commented: (INFRA-2177) people.apache.org httpd MIME type bug: .tgz.sha1 => 'Content-Type: application/x-gzip'
Date Fri, 04 Dec 2009 14:52:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-2177?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12785952#action_12785952

Mark Martinec commented on INFRA-2177:
--------------------------------------

This is still unresolved. As we are approaching a new release of SpamAssassin, the issue is
again hot.


$ HEAD http://people.apache.org/~wtogami/devel/Mail-SpamAssassin-3.3.0-beta1.tar.gz.md5
200 OK
[...]
Content-Type: application/x-gzip

$ HEAD http://people.apache.org/~wtogami/devel/Mail-SpamAssassin-3.3.0-beta1.tar.gz.sha1
200 OK
[...]
Content-Type: application/x-gzip


Files ending in .md5 or .sha1 SHOULD NOT have a Content-Type of application/x-gzip (inherited
from a 'gz' in the middle of their names). I'm not sure what is the most appropriate MIME
type
for ascii digest files, but something like text/plain would be just fine (or perhaps text/x-hash
or
application/x-signature).

Adding something like the following to the httpd configuration helps:

  AddType text/plain .md5
  AddType text/plain .sha1
