#151: Plugin images are sent with wrong Content-Type

Comment (by nacin):

 Because we use DAV, this is purely based on svn:mime-type. If the right
 mime type is set for the image, then accessing it over
 http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/ will return the right mime type, and the
 s-plugins mirror will mirror the same mime type. I have no idea if it is
 possible to force a mime type on that mirror based on file extension, but
 it's pretty "dumb" — I'd imagine not. I guess it is possible to do this in
 Apache, but again, DAV makes things weird.

 Wontfix? Serving application/octet-stream isn't a dealbreaker, forcing svn
 :mime-type on pre-commit is lame, and I'd rather not write a bot for it.
 Systems might have another idea but I doubt it.
