Description (last modified by Russell Keith-Magee)

In django.middleware.gzip.GZipMiddleware have a bug:

def process_response(self, request, response):
        # It's not worth compressing non-OK or really short responses.
        if response.status_code != 200 or len(response.content) < 200:
            return response

exist response without response.content!

when I use: (in )

(r'^media/(?P<path>.*)$', 'django.views.static.serve', {'document_root': settings.MEDIA_ROOT}),

to binary files have a problem, do not exist response.content.

to solver the bug I add 'try' on code:
        if response.status_code != 200 or len(response.content) < 200:
            return response
        return response

In my vision the middlewere gzip don't have compress binary, because the browser is incompatible

Please use preview when submitting code samples.

As for the bug itself: response *always* has a 'content' attribute. That's part of the basic contract of HttpResponse. The static serve view works fine for me with binary content -- because it doesn't just dump a file, it constructs a HttpResponse to contain the file content. I can't reproduce the problem as described, and what you're describing doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
