Michael Osipov commented on MNG-6387:
-------------------------------------

I am thinking wether it should be {{application/pom+xml}} or rather 
{{application/maven-pom+xml}} because just {{pom}} says nothing to the outside 
world. Can you raise this on the dev@? I'd like to hear other opinions.

> Pom files should have a dedicated mime type registered ("application/pom+xml" 
> or similar)

> For the sake of convenience working with ever growing abundance of packages, 
> and, thus, pom files, is not it time to give the humble pom file its own, 
> dedicated mime type (something to the tune of "application/pom+xml")?
> Presently, the fact that pom files don't have a dedicated mime type causes 
> all kinds of minor but annoying issues in all kinds of least expected places.
> Considering that registering a mime type with IANA is a pretty 
> straightforward process and that pom files are widely used for all kinds of 
> automation purposes (and not exclusively by maven anymore), I, on behalf of 
> the wider community, urge you to consider registering a dedicated pom mime 
> type.
