  Description     : Apache module for rewriting web pages to reduce latency and bandwidth

  mod_pagespeed automates the application of those rules in an Apache
  server. HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and images are changed dynamically
  during the web serving process, so that the best practices recommended
  by Page Speed can be used without having to change the way the web
  site is maintained.

Subject: Update on progress
Date: Mon, 29 Nov 2010 09:09:12 -0800
I just wanted to give an update on progress here.

Since the build of mod_pagespeed is rather non-standard, pulling in full
source repositories instead of development headers, I've been poking at
several ways to drop in dev headers automatically. So far its been a lot
of experimentation and not much success.

I'll be reaching out to the chromium-browser maintainers on both debian
and ubuntu for some collaboration on the issue, as the chromium source
code tools are a large part of this.

Please contact me if you'd like to collaborate on this, as it is rather
large and I have limited time to spend on it.

One of the problems with mod_pagespeed is that it bundles a bunch of
libraries (such as zlib and libpng) and included them bundled in the
Debian package would be a policy violation. I created an issue in
mod_pagespeed's bug tracker requesting that they at least optionally
unbundle libraries:

Thanks Craig. IIRC, Google sees things differently for their own
concerns. They've found that for a single binary product, they can
provide better support given their own assembly of dependencies rather
than a distribution set of dependencies.

Still, this can be resolved by simply replacing the expected bundled
libraries with system libraries during the build. A few things that are
embedded need to be packaged as well, but that will be part of the
effort.

I haven't had much time to spend on mod_pagespeed since filing the ITP,
but I still want to resolve the *extremely* difficult bundling and build
issues and get it available with all the usual assurances one can expect
from a Debian package.
