    I'd answer your question: but I don't know the answer. I have seen mail sent to the main list from digest users in the past -
and am not aware of changes to the list policy. I'm forwarding this mail to squid-users to get an answer for you.

Regarding squid 2.5 -

I don't want to be a member of since I just want to receive the digest; as a result, I can't post messages
to that group, only to the group to which I belong (the squid-users digest). The Instructions at the web site where I signed up said
that I could join either and post to either, it shouldn't matter. It turns out that it *did* matter, because of spam, to the
listserv software; now it turns out that it also matters to a moderator, for unknown reasons. I just need an answer, here. In the
past I have offered advice to others in this group; it seems perverse that now that I have a questions my access is denied.
And since I'm asking, how do I download 2.5 HEAD?

The appropriate place to ask this is I
haven't done any work on the ident code in squid, so it's really over to
the main list.

Also, please note that the stable NTLM code is now part of the main
squid distribution - you should download squid 2.5 HEAD and use that.
