Subject: Re: Marking ODF mimetype as OBSOLETE - Registering a new mime type

That sounds like the correct process. I don't have a ticket set up for that so, if I don't get it added in time, just send me email.Â

Do you knowÂwhich RFC covers that type of filing?Â

IANA has registered:

vnd.oasis.opendocument.database application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.database

Author/Change controller : OASIS OpenDocument TC
Email: tc-admin&oasis-open.org

That mime type, so far as we know, has never been used nor does it appear in any version of ODF. 

We want to register:

application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.base odb

which does appear in ODF and is used in fact. 

2 - step process

1. Have the vnd.oasis.opendocument.database declared OBSOLETE (that's you)

2. Prepare a new registration for the new mime type (I'm doing that for your approval, after vetting by Francis Cave and the TC).

For example:

ecmascript - OBSOLETED in favor of application/ecmascript

So, I suspect these changes will need to be in tandem. 

I assume I will need to file a support ticket for these changes, after the TC agrees to the changes?


Hope you are having a great week!
