The Compression Project
This project was spawned by a minor series of tweets about the opaque and seemingly arbitrary compression of uploaded media.
Ideally, this will encourage people to always save copies of their own media before uploading them, and for sites to be transparent about how and when they compress users’ uploads.
The easiest approach would be either a
compression.txt similar to
robots.txt or something in a more standardized format like
_data/sites.yml, click Edit on it (or this link).
If you don’t know how the YAML syntax works, just open an issue instead.
The mandatory fields to include are currently
All supported fields can be found in the schema file, linter.py.
I have no idea which fields I will end up using, so by all means let me know what makes sense and what doesn’t.
If you have a suggestion for a site to include, submit it for
_data/todo.yml just as you would
