Using gzip Compression in Apache to Serve Pages Faster

Enabling gzip compression in Apache will dramatically reduce the amount of data transmitted. This is easily accomplished by doing the following as root:

cd /etc/apache2
cat <<\! > httpd.conf.local
SetOutputFilter DEFLATE
SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.(?:gif|jpe?g|png)$ \
no-gzip dont-vary
SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \
\.(?:exe|t?gz|zip|bz2|sit|rar|7z)$ \

SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.pdf$...

After building GNOME Shell from the main branch, remove and re-clone GNOME Shell from the repositories:

rm -rf ~/gnome-shell/source/gnome-shell

Publishing the Website

I haven't been able to figure out how to configure Apache to access the mounted filesystem yet. In lieu of this I created a script to just copy the files that change while I'm doing development. I created a bash script called: publish, with the following contents:

if [ ! -d ${target}/${dir} ]
sudo mkdir ${target}/${dir}
sudo pax -r -w -v -Y -Z . ${target}/${dir}

I used aurel32's page as a start point:

svn switch --relocate file:///Users/username/svn/folder file:///mnt/username/svn/folder

The repository was originally created using the command:...
