New submission from Bohuslav "Slavek" Kabrda <bkabrda at redhat.com>:

when using Python's Lib/mimetypes.py and none of the default files is present, there are some defaults used. For javascript, the default is application/x-javascript. However, according to IANA specification [1], this is not a registered type, and application/javascript should be used (see section 7).
I'm attaching a simple patch that fixes this.
