Registering mime-types for disk images

Postby thothy » Sat Dec 06, 2014 9:35 am

Hi all, I am currently considering to register some official mime-types (also called media-types) for the disk image types that are used for Atari ST emulation. As a start, I am looking at MSA and DIM images first. But before registering, I'd like to get some thought about good names. My current suggestions are:

For .MSA:
  • application/vnd.msa-disk-image
  • application/vnd.magic-shadow-archive
  • application/vnd.magic-shadow-archiver-disk-image

For .DIM:
  • application/vnd.dim-disk-image
  • application/vnd.fast-copy-disk-image
  • application/vnd.fast-copy-dim

Any preferences or other suggestions?

Don't suppose it matters too much. For me, these seem adequate:

MSA: Application/vnd.magic-shadow-archive
DIM: Application/vnd.fast-copy-disk-image
Mega"SST" 12, MegaSTE, STE: Desktopper case, IDE interface, UltraSatan (8GB + 512Mb) + HXC floppy emulator. Plus some STE's/STFM's

FYI, there's now an official mime-type for .MSA disk images:

Right, thanks for reminding me, Marcer, I completely forgot about that one. So I think I should use something with "fastcopy" in the name of the mime-type instead of "dim" to avoid confusion...
