In chapter 5. The Debian package management system on page 251:

The mysteries of LaTeX have caused the fifth and sixth line of the squid.conf file snippet to be falsely printed. In the fifth line, instead of the underlined parenthesis and 't' and 'g' characters, escaped periods should have appeared. In the sixth line, the wrapping was messed up:

refresh_pattern \.(u?deb|dsc|changes|(orig\.tar|diff)\.gz)$ 14400 20% 2592000
refresh_pattern ((Packages|Sources)(\.(gz|bz2))?|Release(\.gpg)?)$ 14300 20% 14400
Feedback

Kristin Shoemaker, linuxlibrarian.org: I highly recommend The Debian System to anyone interested in how free/open source software works. I especially recommend it to intermediate Linux users, whether or not they're running a Debian-based system (though I imagine they'll want to try one by the time they're done with the book).
