Re: [nginx] Update mime-types

Hello, J.

It is now generally recommended to use the mime types from the mailcap package.
At a minimum, it is used in the NixOS and ArchLinux OS distributives.
But in the mailcap package:
- too many different mime types specified (nginx developers do not recommend
using large lists of mime-types)
- uses new type values for javascript and xml, which are not supported in
nginx
- instead of the recommended type image/x-icon, image/vnd.microsoft.icon
is used - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ICO_(file_format)#MIME_type
- Those some meme-types are missing

I would like the developers to update the current mime list and add new
commonly used types.
