    Google discontinued Mod Pagespeed and transferred Mod PageSpeed to the Apache foundation.

    The last stable release is from 2015 and the last beta from 2018.

    As Google discontinued the project. And advises website owners to optimize their websites using the web guidelines on: Google web.dev Including the new Pagespeed insight.

    Since much has changed from 2015 - 2022. There are better techniques for optimizing a website. I suggest removing Pagespeed from ≥CMM8.

    Yeah already half way there. With Nginx 1.23 breaking ngx_pagespeed. So ngx_pagespeed is force disabled if user tries enabling it with Nginx 1.23 at least https://community.centminmod.com/th...-module-for-nginx-1-23-in-130-00beta01.23117/

    But yeah with EL8+ probably just totally disable it eventually.

    Advice remove it before CMM8 comes out so that it is clear to end users.

    In any case, I suggest you write a short (can be point-wise) release note for CMM8.
    With the new functionality but also the deprecated functionality.

    Was looking at existing code for https://community.centminmod.com/th...-module-for-nginx-1-23-in-130-00beta01.23117/ and just realized that in EL8+, ngx_pagespeed already is forced disabled as EL8 defaults to Nginx 1.23 and as such the existing code will automatically force disable ngx_pagespeed when Nginx 1.23 is detected :)

    Still will add a check for EL8+ to disable ngx_pagespeed just in case folks try Nginx versions <1.2.3
