      Description

      Starting with Moodle 2.9 we have a UI to add new mimetypes - see MDL-42616

      But we still get bugs asking for new mimetypes to be added to the default set - see MDL-49243.

      We need to decide what we do with these requests.

      MDL-49466 Policy: New mime type requests - Final outcome

      Any new mimetype request will be automatically accepted given it's available in the IANA list OR provides some verifiable value to the - learning - experience. Integrators reserve the right to decide, ask, vote... in controversial cases not covered by the previous sentence.
