Jukka Zitting commented on TIKA-573:
------------------------------------

> The consumer now checks if .jpg matches the actual extension .jpeg and it does not.

Why would the consumer do this check? It already knows the file type in your example above.

I'm not saying this functionality wouldn't be needed, just trying to understand the need here.
