@c FIXME: see comments to 5323623.
Data is a non-negative decimal priority number, followed by a space,
followed by a LysKOM content type glob pattern. Clients should send
texts to a conference only if the content-type matches any of the
allowed-content-type glob patterns.
If there are allowed-content-type aux-items with different priority
numbers, it is a hint to the client about which content-type is most
desirable. Content-types that matches a lower priority number are
As an example, consider a conference with the following four
allowed-content-type aux-items:
1 text/plain
2 x-kom/basic
2 text/enriched
3 text/*
@end example
This means that text/plain is preferred, that x-kom/basic and
text/enriched can be used if there is a reason why text/plain is
inadequate, and that any text type (such as text/html) is acceptable.
Other content types, such as x-kom/user-area, should not be used.
If no allowed-content-type aux-item exists, it should be interpreted as
if a single allowed-content-type aux-item with the value @samp{1
text/plain} exists.
The server does not currently enforce the above restriction on the
content type of new texts. This mechanism is currently a hint to the
client (or to the author of a new text). This may change in the
future, if experience shows that it is desirable to have the server
enforce the content type.
