A small typo in GZipMiddleware causes it to compress files of Content-Type: */javascript, even though it shouldn't.

I've attached a patch that should fix this problem.

See also #5754.

Doesn't this conflict with #5313? They're both in the "Ready for checkin" stage yet seem to be at cross purposes.

I'm more than happy if you apply the patch in #5772, before clobbering it with #5313.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

(In [6537]) Changed HttpResponse.get() to lower case the header value before looking it up. This makes it consistent will other header accesses. Fixed #5754, #5772.
