Welcome Jonathan,

   The devel site is a bit out of date there sorry. Squid-3 uses Bazaar
(bzr) as its VCS so sourceforge is mostly used for Squid-2 stuff.

The new(er) developer guidelines are at:

Details on how to setup bzr and a local working environment are at:

The coding guidelines are at:

For ICAP Alex is the resident expert/mentor/coordinator. He is a bit
busy at present so may not be readily available, but grab a copy of the
code anyways and see if you can understand how the relevant bits work.

Feel free to jump on anything you see happening wrong. Just remember to
mention anything that might take longer that a day to fix, so we don't
have people doubling up on work. Reconciling differences in approach and
style can be annoying for all involved.

Whenever you have something ready for submission, or even if you just
want opinions post a patch or merge bundle here to squid-dev mailing list.

For stuff to practice on there is a list of general tasks anyone can do though none of them approach
the ICAP area yet.


Please be using
   Current Stable Squid 2.7.STABLE6 or 3.0.STABLE18
   Current Beta Squid
