Webpositive : Download HPKG files

I had actually expected that the haiku own package system from the native browser are recognized.

Unfortunately, the hpkg file, when trying to download it, is opened into the browser and not like other packages (zip, tar ...) get ready for download.

This should be changed.

Please try to take a look at WebPositive component to see if it was already reported before. Extra points for setting a component.

This is a problem on the web server side. They set the MIME type to text/plain for unknown files, and as a result, the browser handles them as text file. If you configure the web browser to set them with a proper mime type, they will be downloaded instead. The web browser could try to workaround this (by scanning the file contents and not trusting the web server), but fixing the web server is the proper solution. Now we need to get apache to properly MIME-sniff hpkg files...
