|Summary||0001584: New file types, please.|
|Description||aMule could definitely use new file types for search categories. There are several common or semi-common filetypes aMule doesn't appear to search for by extension or file magic, such as .DAA (CD-Images), bzip2 (Archives), and so forth. It's definitely lacking in more common and also relatively new UNIX filetypes, like .XZ (Archives).|
Since aMule doesn't release very often, a way to add file extensions and/or file magic in some kind of user-defined list (via the UI) would be wonderful.
|Tags||No tags attached.|

A configurable list is not worth the additional complexity imho.
Did you check out the SVN version? It should have more file types than 2.2.
I was able to access the git repo mentioned on the aMule wiki, but I wasn't aware of an svn repo. (Berlios does not appear to allow ro svn access, even if you're a registered Berlios user.) In any case, I'm using a headless amuled on a Gentoo server, and amulegui on an Ubuntu box, where building from source is slow and difficult (read: not worth it) at the moment.
I just found https://launchpad.net/~amule-trunk/+archive/ppa [^] -- is this the "official" place to get svn builds for Ubuntu? I see the packages haven't been updated for about a month. The proto versions appear to match between these debs and egit amuled for now, but this won't be the case if the build I just pulled from launchpad falls much farther out of sync.
This dependency on using recent source builds to get minor tweaks like better / more complete file types lists is kind of the reason I opened this ticket, with this wording. :) It may not seem "worth" the complexity, but I don't know any official or semi-official way to get svn snaps on Gentoo apart from the ebuild I just crufted by hand, and there's kind of a steep learning curve for new Ubuntu users (I know-- I used to be one) when it comes to finding PPAs or official project packages for Stuff. A lot of users-- esp. seasoned sysadms I know --refuse to use non-final builds of anything, especially not for a comparatively tiny thing like new filetypes in the GUI.
(Also, technically, I shouldn't be using ~x86 Gentoo with loads of overlays plus my own custom ebuilds for a firewall machine. So, in the near future, I'm migrating to Ubuntu Server and avoiding weird pre-release code.)
There is no public SVN, but there are tarballs available here: http://forum.amule.org/index.php?topic=16651.0 [^]
Packages for SVN versions see here: http://forum.amule.org/index.php?board=70.0 [^]
(no, there is no official place for Ubuntu packages at the moment).
And the Feature Requests section of the forum is much better suited for feature requests than the tracker.
