Summary0000359: v5.42 not correctly identifying JSON Lines files
Descriptionv5.41 would correctly identify a JSON Lines file (see and as json. v5.42 now only identifies it as ascii text.

(This is breaking functionality in a project of mine which requires the ability to detect json files.)
Steps To Reproduce1. Upgrade "file" to v5.42
2. Run "file" on a valid JSON Lines file.
3. "file" will not identify it as json; only ascii text.
Additional InformationSee the following output for an example:

$ cat /tmp/test.json

$ pacman -Q file
file 5.41-1

$ file /tmp/test.json
/tmp/test.json: JSON data

$ sudo pacman -S file
Packages (1) file-5.42-1

$ pacman -Q file
file 5.42-1

$ file /tmp/test.json
/tmp/test.json: ASCII text
TagsNo tags attached.
