             Summary: Allow to define compression levels
                 Key: JCRVLT-163
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCRVLT-163
             Project: Jackrabbit FileVault
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Packaging
    Affects Versions: 3.0
            Reporter: Timothee Maret
             Fix For: 3.1.36

As discussed in [0], this issue tracks allowing to specify the compression level when building
packages. The primary idea is to avoid compressing (compression level = {{NO_COMPRESSION}})
 already compressed binaries, identified based on their MIME type.

Setting the compression level is a tradeoff between the compression speed and the size of
the compressed artefacts.

Different use cases likely favour maximising either of the two. 
Therefor, it may make sense to allow configuring the compression levels per use case (not

A generic way to express this configuration would be:
* a mapping from MIME type to compression level
* the default level (for MIME type not matching any entry in the mapping)
