#100 closed defect (wontfix)

.txt should be a trusted extension

Description

The primary concern with this is that the behavior of scripts.mit.edu has been to disallow .txt files, so user expectation may be in this direction. Thus, I am curious:

  1. How support requests we have gotten because someone published a txt file and it wasn't visible, and
  1. How many .txt files live in web_scripts in all of our users?

Ticket #92 is related.

Since the scripts team is not comfortable evaluating every .txt file in a web_scripts directory to see if it should be publicly accessible, there is no good way of fixing this.
