Tinyproxy ========= Tinyproxy is a small, efficient HTTP/SSL proxy daemon released under the GNU General Public License. Tinyproxy is very useful in a small network setting, where a larger proxy would either be too resource intensive, or a security risk. One of the key features of Tinyproxy is the buffering connection concept. In effect, Tinyproxy will buffer a high speed response from a server, and then relay it to a client at the highest speed the client will accept. This feature greatly reduces the problems with sluggishness on the Internet. If you are sharing an Internet connection with a small network, and you only want to allow HTTP requests to be allowed, then Tinyproxy is a great tool for the network administrator.

Contributing ------------ If you would like to contribute a feature, or a bug fix to the Tinyproxy source, please send a patch (preferably as a unified diff. i.e. `diff -u` against the "master" branch of the Tinyproxy source code git repository to tinyproxy-developers-list. Please include a description of what your patch does. Tinyproxy's git repository is git://banu.com/tinyproxy.git. The following command creates a local copy: ---- git clone git://banu.com/tinyproxy.git ---- The easiest and preferred way to create a patch for submission is to check in your changes locally and use `git format-patch` to generate a mbox-style commit file that contains the diff along with the commit message and author information. Such a format-patch file can be integrated into the upstream repository, automatically keeping the commit message and author information. You can also meet developers and discuss development issues and patches in the #tinyproxy IRC channel on Freenode (irc.freenode.net).
