To upload Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) images to the Sandbox do I
simply update my local subversion configuration (as mentioned here to include the MIME details for SVG files or
will something need to be updated on the server as well?

As mentioned at RFC 3023
( has this to say about the SVG MIME

---------- RFC info on SVG -------------
8.19 Image/svg+xml

   Content-type: image/svg+xml

   <?xml version="1.0" ?>

   Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) documents are XML documents whose
   content describes graphical information, as defined by [SVG]. As a
   format based on XML, SVG documents SHOULD use the '+xml' suffix
   convention in their MIME content-type identifier. However, no
   content type has yet been registered for SVG and so this media type
   should not be used until such registration has been completed.

---------- END RFC info on SVG -------------

Should I simply update my local configuration file to include the line:

*.svg = svn:eol-style=native; svn:mime-type=image/svg+xml

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
