Proxy support for HTTP/1.1 on the client side doesn't imply that it supports full end-to-end pipelining. The proxy can advertise 1.1 without supporting pipelining. Even if it does that doesn't necessarily imply that it has full end-to-end pipelining. I'm not sure what the current state of squid is, but for years it translated client side HTTP 1.1 pipelining into individual HTTP 1.0 requests on the server side. I don't use freebsd-update myself, but from a quick look at the manpage I think it could benefit by extending the cron command to allow fetching a new release automatically. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
