Description Brion Vibber 2014-02-16 18:56:34 UTC
See also bug 54291 for related config for

We're using more and more little SVG files for style effects and icons used in MediaWiki client-side code; when not directly embedded in CSS these get loaded as static files off of and by default are not compressed, for example on the beta features page.

While these are often not huge, they do compress very well (as XML source) and it'd be nice to auto-compress them on the wire.
