Why is .tsv file format not supported for file upload?

In Bioinformatics, .tsv is a very common file format, often preferred over .csv.

Unfortunately, when I try to upload a .tsv file in the issue editor, I get an error message:

We don't support this filetype, use one of these....

Why? Is there a good reason for this? It’s silly to change file extensions just so I can upload a file.

Thank you for the feature request, and for the question!

Unfortunately, I was not able to reproduce this behavior – and was able to upload a .tsv file to one of my repos on github.com. Where are you seeing this error message?

Edit: Looks like this is a feature gap in the issue editor, and agree that .tsvs should be supported as file attachments.
