Package: mc
Version: 3:4.8.11-1
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

mc is not able to open "Java archive data (JAR)" files with .zip
extension. Try to download any zip file from
http://download.cyanogenmod.org/ and open them with mc:

file cm-11-20140309-NIGHTLY-yuga.zip
cm-11-20140309-NIGHTLY-yuga.zip: Java archive data (JAR)

Please include the following patch:
