Compressing the following resources with gzip could reduce their transfer size by 60.3KiB (74% reduction).
Compressing http://beta.etherpad.org/static/css/pad.css could save 19.7KiB (76% reduction).
Compressing http://beta.etherpad.org/socket.io/socket.io.js could save 15KiB (68% reduction).
Compressing http://beta.etherpad.org/static/js/require-kernel.js could save 13.3KiB (74% reduction).
Compressing http://beta.etherpad.org/p/testing123 could save 12.3KiB (79% reduction).
For asset compression see #468. For general compression, for some reason, gzipped assets are cached, if this is not a requirement, then we could adjust CachingMiddleware (replacing it with a composition of existing middlewares would be better) and easily fix the gzip behavior for all resources.
We merged #468
