RE: gzip compression (was: Re: Logging Subversion client HTTP requests)

Please note that many of the responses subversoin sends are already compressed as binary difference streams against the previous version. Gzip compression on REPORT responses isn't going to yield an average factor 5 compression rate.

I believe that's something you can set up in your httpd.conf if desired. It's a feature of Apache and not specific to (nor configurable from) Subversion.
