Re: Bug#589991: mime-support: MIME types needed for x-gzip and x-compress

Dear Apache Maintainers...

I'm being petitioned quite strongly to re-add types for gzipped files to the /etc/mime.types file.  I originally removed those types from that file because they caused Apache to work incorrectly, namely that Apache would then send a foo.html.gz file as type=application/x-gzip instead of type=text/html;encoding=gzip.

If I were to add these types back, what havoc might that wreak on current and previous releases of Apache?

Treat someone as they are and they will remain that way.
