when trying to download the source of an svg, the server returns
"application/octetstream" as the mime type (which causes my FF to want to open
it as OGG, for whatever reason). This needs to be changed to "image/svg+xml" in
the apache configuration.
Added svg to mime.types file on albert.
The MIME type right now is "image/svg", which will work for most viewers, but
it's not correct. It should be "image/svg+xml"
Looks right to me...
You already replied that you'd fix it back in Wikipedia's Village Pump, but for
the sake of the bug: it's apparently just a display problem on the Image: pages,
which say "MIME type: image/svg".
The mime type used internally by MediaWiki for SVG is image/svg - that's how it
is recorded in the database, and thus shown on the description page. This is
actually my fault, I did that wrong when I wrote the MimeMagic stuff.
Note that the MIME type in the HTTP header is unrelated to the one used by
MediaWiki, because image files are not served through MediaWiki, but directly by
MediaWiki could be made to use the correct mime type internally by changing the
code in the five or so places where "image/svg" is hard-coded, and then updating
the entries in the database. I'm not sure if that is worth the effort, though.
I would prefer it to be consistent with the correct type, if possible...
However this should be moved to a new bug, because this bug referred
to an actual, unrelated, server misconfiguration some months back.
