    Description

      There are well over 25 JavaScript and CSS resources included in Confluence version 2.10 and none seem to be minified. Suggest combining some of these files if possible to reduce the total number of server requests (where possible, this can improve performance). The Yahoo! User Interface Library online provides an extremely good CSS and JavaScript minifier called YUI Compressor. I recommend that you consider using that also. In my opinion, it is not good for a commercial product to ship scripts unminified. A good practice would be to include the master scripts and the -min versions in the source, but let the production release use only the -min versions.

      You can find the YUI Compressor here:
