# Example VCL for Varnish 4.0 with public-inbox WWW code
# This is based on what shipped for 3.x a long time ago (I think)
# and I'm hardly an expert in VCL (nor should we expect anybody
# who maintains a public-inbox HTTP interface to be).
#
# It seems to work for providing some protection from traffic
# bursts; but perhaps the public-inbox WWW interface can someday
# provide enough out-of-the-box performance that configuration
# of an extra component is pointless.
