RE: [seul-edu] CIPA and Linux

I am new to the Linux world and am looking into Squid (or a variant) to
provide us with CIPA compliance. I've done some experimentation, but am
hoping to have things ready for action at the end of this summer.

Subject: [seul-edu] CIPA and Linux

Is anyone looking at the requirements of CIPA for filtering systems and how
Linux could provide a good solution?  In my talks with school administrators
on this subject I hear a constant refrain of Cyberpatrol and NT.  Given the
short time frames in the statute, it seems few are giving any consideration
to alternatives nor do I see much dscssion of alternatives anywhere.  It
seems this is leading to further entrenchment of NT and foreclosing an
opportunity for Linux in education.
