As a ports/ peer I occasionally browse many patches trying to find those having the least amount of issues. If an attachment cannot be viewed within a browser this often means closing tab and moving on to the next. To avoid neglecting such bugs adjusting "Content type: auto-detect" may help:
- application/shar -> text/plain
- application/x-shar -> text/plain
- text/x-patch or text/x-diff -> text/plain + mark as "patch"
- text/* -> text/plain
Having a bot periodically (e.g. once a hour) convert types would work as well.
