Squid Users:

Citing Squid2:
1. I need to refer to Squid (that supports Delay Pools) in a document.

        i. Which is the least version of Squid that officially supports it?
           I believe Squid 2.1. Please correct me if I am wrong.

        ii.What is the official URL for the above version?
           I believe (

Bandwidth Limits by MIME types:
2. Is bandwidth limiting by mime type supported in Squid2.1?

        I am referring to Stefan's patch for Squid1.1?


        "This patch from Stefan Rompf allows bandwidth limiting on mime type. On
        the first look, this contradicts the use of the cache, but allows
        to prevent people from listening to realaudio, loading large jpegs
        etc. without disturbing normal work."

Delay Pool Development:
3. Are "Delay Pools" being worked on?
        i. Has it been frozen at that level available in Squid 2.1-PATCH1?
        ii.Is there any plans for future (or TODO) work regarding
                Delay Pools?

Delay Pool Documentation:
4. i. Would the developers be interested a documented
             version of delay_pools.c?
             I am planning to document it (it helps me understand the code).
        ii. Does anyone have a documented version of it? It would save me
             the trouble of documenting it to "squid-developer" quality level.

        iii.Apart from the documents on Delay Pools at,
            is there a tutorial on configuring Delay Pools?

Squid2 on OpenBSD:
5. I current operate Squid 1.1 (an OpenBSD port of that version of Squid)
        Is anybody on this list running Squid 2 on OpenBSD?

        Thank You.
