Description

Post types autom. have a permalink with category base. This should no be the case?!

Post types should behave more like categories.
When using the url mysite.com/category/science (at least) archive.pgp is fired. There also should be an post-type-archive.php

The url mysite.com/category/ brings 404. I can use a page with the name "category" to create an overview for all categories.
This doesn't work for post types.

When trying to use post types for news you want to habe a permalink mysite.com/news (showing an overview of all news) and the post types with mysite.com/news/the-new-info.html

Theres no way to do that with the post types.

It is supported. See #13818.

You have to set the has_archive parameter when registering the custom post type:
