Description Nathan Weeks 2020-12-08 14:02:42 UTC
Please consider enabling mod_brotli in the default www/apache24 build.

mod_brotli is now supported by the vast majority of current web browsers, and is in the Apache HTTP Server packages of many Linux distributions, including (at least) Debian 10, Ubuntu 20.04, and RHEL/CentOS 8.

At least a couple other HTTP server ports (nginx-full and likely lighttpd 1.4.56) have brotli enabled by default.
