I'd like to know if its been considered to provide some support and documentation for how to enable the SPDY protocol with Atlassian products.
The SPDY protocol/module is now used as default across many Goolgle products and sites like wordpress.com, facebook... It seems like it could have advantages for Confluence products as well. SPDY is also available in most modern browsers.
It can speed up websites/web applications quite a bit, and is far superior to HTTP/S as far as I've heard.
For our installation, we're actually using Apache in front of tomcat, to simplify our SSL implementations and whatnot, so we would probably need to implement SPDY on Apache rather than tomcat. However, it would be nice to have some feedback from Atlassian anyways.
Apache has the best support for SPDY so far with pre-built packages for RPM and Debian systems https://developers.google.com/speed/spdy/mod_spdy/
It only works for HTTPS. Be sure to have configured a HTTPS fallback as not all browsers support SPDY. This needs to be tested.
