Smart HTTP fetch: gzip requests
The upload-pack requests are mostly plain text and they compress rather well. Deflating them with Content-Encoding: gzip can easily drop the size of the request by 50%, reducing the amount of data to transfer as we negotiate the common commits. Signed-off-by: Shawn O.
