For an eternity autodetect has set logs to application/binary. And then at some point in the last ~6 months (hand wave) it started to correctly set them to plaintext. In the last month or two, autodetect is setting them to text/x-log, and then anaconda devs are spending time changing this to plaintext.

So if autodetect is going to continue to suck then it should default to the #1 attachment type, which is probably plaintext for logs; at the expense of PNG/JPG getting set to plaintext, which funny enough autodetect always gets right. But I don't see how the backend can't just set *.log to plaintext always. There's no need for it to parse the file contents in this case, and even though filename extensions are a totally perverse domain violation, I might even suggest only honoring filename extensions just to keep this simple.
