Subject: Re: [office] Registering OpenDocument Database MIME type and File NameExtensions at IANA - (ODF 1.2 draft 7-5, Appendix C)

As there are no objects I will register the OpenDocument Database 
document as previously described by the IANA.
Please let me know if anybody is aware of further applications 
supporting the ODB format aside of

OpenOffice.org 3
OpenOffice.org 2.4 (import)
StarOffice 9
StarOffice 8 PP10 (import)

As Dennis stated there is as well an issue in the MIME type declaration 
of OpenDocument Global Text documents.
The MIME type suffix has been erroneously defined at IANA as 'otm' 
instead of 'odm', as used in the ODF spec and in the implementations.

If there are no further objects, I will try as well to get the IANA 
definition fixed.
