        1. Attempt to upload a file type not in the MIME type list - this should be rejected.
        2. Attempt to upload a file type which is in the list - this should be accepted.
      3. On Moodle 3.1 or earlier create an assignment with file submission and backup the course

    Description

      It would (I think) be one thing that could benefit from a default setting. Possibly even an option to enforce the setting site-wide. 

      I am thinking particularly of institutions that have a policy to have submissions in a typical format. In particular, if you don't have working unoconv (does anybody? ) then it would be especially useful to be able to force pdf submissions. Or at least have it as a default so that teachers creating Assignments don't forget.
