[Matplotlib-users] Change JPG compression ratio in savefig

Dear developers,

Since I can't reach the SF tracker, I send my feature request for a

JPG compression switch with savefig to the developer list.
Details follow below.
I hope you can help.

 Jeff, thanks for the hint.
But I really want to reduce the compression.
I would like to write a feature request, but the link to the tracker () at gave me "Error - The Tracker has been disabled for this group".
Should I send my request through the developer list?
