Subject Re: disabling gzip filters by default
Date Thu, 10 Nov 2005 22:45:33 GMT
Let's rephrase the question:

For the high-traffic Roller sites, are you using your container to
GZip output, or are you using Roller's built-in GZip filters?

I'm using the built-in filters, not any that are provided by Apache or
Tomcat.  Therefore, I'm -1 on this change.

we can leave what we have in place for those users who still want it, but just have it disabled
by default.
