Add application/x-openvpn-profile mime type

Review Request #128958 - Created Sept. 20, 2016 and updated

Kai Uwe Broulik

This adds a mime type for .ovpn files used for configuring OpenVPN clients.

I can now click a file and have plasma-nm's connection editor import it.

Not sure about the magic, "client" is all I could find which isn't very descriptive, so perhaps better to just look for *.ovpn (I have also seen *.openvpn but *.ovpn seems more common)

Please submit this into upstread shared-mime-info instead [or possibly in addition], see

I can approve it upstream.

It is possible to define more than one glob pattern tag, so you can also add *.openvpn if necessary.

  1. ping? did you see my comment? ;)

  2. Yes, I did see your comment. The "ping" was to this review's author to follow your instructions :-) I am one of the Plasma NM developers and there is review for Plasma NM that depends on this one, so I am interested in having application/x-openvpn-profile mime type available so I can approve the other review.
