Subject: Problem with IANA MIME media types registry

===8<==============Original message text===============
[CC'd to IETF discussion list and ietf-types discussion list]


Recent changes to the page at
accessed via the link from the IANA Assigned numbers page
have rendered the registry of assigned media types useless.
Prior to the recent change, the media types registry listed
the assigned MIME top-level media types, viz. application, audio,
image, message, model, multipart, text, and video.  Since the
change, only the application top-level type is listed (audio, image,
message, model, multipart, text, and video have vanished without
a trace) and superfluous repetition of the application subtypes
listed in
has appeared (these of course are not top-level media types).

Could you please investigate what has gone awry and regenerate
a page that provides top-level media types.

Forwarded because my earlier assertion that things were fine now they
had stable URIs for media types seems to be premature. What was formerly
under application has now moved up a level and the rest has disappeared.
Or rather, become unlinked. For example
is still there, just not linked anywhere.

I suspect its just an update glitch, but anyway....
