Web App Manifest ( https://w3c.github.io/manifest/ ) is "JSON-based manifest file that provides developers with a centralized place to put metadata associated with a web application".

Although it is not required, it is recommended by W3C ( https://w3c.github.io/manifest/#media-type-registration ) that manifest uses `application/manifest+json` media type and `.webmanifest` extension.

This should also be used by Python's mimetypes module.


I can submit PR for this, but I don't know if it should be added to `types_map` or `common_types`. It is currently not registered with IANA, but it is "for community review and will be submitted to the IESG for review, approval, and registration with IANA".

If it is not strictly needed for MIME type that it is registered with IANA, I will add it to `types_map`. If it is, I will add it `common_types` and later move it to `types_map` when it will be registered. What should I choose?
