squid on feisty missing /etc/squid/squid.conf.default which is mentioned in manpage for squid

squid (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: squid

man squid
page down to the end:

              The main configuration file. You must initially make changes to
              this file for squid to work. For example, the default configu‐
              ration does not allow access from any browser.

              Reference copy of the configuration file. Always kept up to date
              with the version of Squid you are using. Use this to look up
              configuration syntax after upgrading.

There is no /etc/squid/squid.conf.default. Either the manpage must be changed, or the file must be included. Including the file is probably a better idea, because there is no manpage for squid.conf (which is horribly stupid, but not anyone at Ubuntu's fault.)

The file is actually placed in /usr/share/doc/squid/examples/squid.conf (which is the correct place for it).

I'll update the man page to reflect this.

Changed in squid:
assignee: nobody → shawarma
status: New → In Progress

ehh... Has this been fixed yet?
