Just to clarify: there are two .txt files ...
(A) an archive .txt.gz file before I made the change to the mm_cfg.py file; and (B) an archive .txt.gz file after I made the change.
Slightly off topic, but after the cron/nightly_gzip job runs, the .txt.gz file will be updated with the contents from the .txt file.
However, the point of this post is to point out that the .txt.gz files are an anachronism from the days when the bit of bandwidth saved by delivering a compressed version was important to more that a few ancient curmudgeons like me.
These days, the bandwidth savings is unimportant and is probably offset by the redundant storage and processing for the .txt.gz files.
If you want to get rid of these files, see https://wiki.list.org/x/17892086.
