Bug Description

We should look into using slimit instead of YUI compressor to minify our Javascript:

  https://github.com/rspivak/slimit

Apparently it compresses more:

While the slimit-compressed version of libravatar.js is marginally smaller:

-rw-r--r-- 1 francois francois 876 mai 29 15:00 libravatar.js.js-slimit

The yui-compressed version of jcrop.js is much smaller:

-rw-r--r-- 1 francois francois 25936 jun 7 2014 jcrop.js
-rw-r--r-- 1 francois francois 12875 mai 29 14:59 jcrop.js.js-yui
-rw-r--r-- 1 francois francois 16997 mai 29 15:00 jcrop.js.js-slimit

Therefore let's stick with yui-compressor.
