      Description

      The custom file formats used by Qt tools should be registered as MIME types, so files of their types can have proper display with own icons & type name in file managers, file selection dialogs, file listings in web UIs (like of code repositories), IDEs, etc.

       

      Ideally those would be registered at IANA:

      https://www.iana.org/assignments/media-types/media-types.xhtml

      Many (on *Linux) would be already happy if all of them were registered with shared-mime-info from freedesktop.org:

      https://cgit.freedesktop.org/xdg/shared-mime-info/tree/freedesktop.org.xml.in

      "text/x-qml", "application/x-designer" are already there.

      Missing are at least:

      • qrc file
      • qmldir file
      • pro/pri file
      • qch file
      • qdoc index file

      I would be willing to create and propose the patch for shared-mime-info. For that though I would like to know the mimetype string ids and titles the Qt maintainers would like to see for the different types.
