I hope to release a new version of squid sometime in the coming week.

if you do create a package for this, could you distribute your debian.*
files? maybe in a package which contained just the debian.rules etc,
and either a pointer to where to get the source from, or a script to
fetch the source...it would be great if it were possible to make the
build/install process as simple as:

    dpkg -i gated-install.deb
       ## displays message about gated redistribution policy.
    cd /usr/src/gated
    ./debian.rules fetch_src
    ./debian.rules unpack_src
    ./debian.rules binary
    dpkg -i ../gated.deb
    dpkg -r gated-install.deb
