Purpose of this page
It does not cover what compression is, and shall contain links to wikipedia articles for said software.
basically, This is Compression as it relates to mediawiki.
Where the content came from
This page content was ripped from an administration guide. This software is required for mediawiki's use, and shall be a "compression with regards to wikimedia's projects" page.
Reason why it was placed here
The main portion of this content is superfolous to the administration guide that it was in -- it just wastes paper for most users, it is valuable information though.
if this page, or a portion of this page, can be embeded into the administration guide in a "verbose mode" then I would like that very much. AaronPeterson 02:51, 23 Jul 2004 (UTC)
