Re: Added hundreds of media types to /etc/mime.types

Hi Helmut, and everybody,

I have just uploaded media-types 4.0.0, which I hope removes all
regressions regarding duplicated file extensions in the `application/`

Interestingly, there has been duplicates in our `mime.types` file for a
long time, but never within the `application/` type.  Several subtypes
are listed under both `text/` and `application/`, for instance `x-sh`.
I have left this unchanged as we are close to the release.

The changes I made are described in `debian/changelog` of course, and
I also kept a record of the cases where an arbitrary decision is needed
in the source package's `README.md` file.

Earlier release of Debian already shipped a `mime.types` file with
upper-case file extension, so I think that their presence is not a
regression, although I agree that it might be a problem.  I propose
to resolve that in the next release.

Have a nice day,
