Primary features Caching. Designed for caching Debian packages. Good asyncore design pattern.

Replicator is a replicating HTTP proxy server. Files that are downloaded through the proxy are transparently stored in a private cache, so an exact copy of accessed remote files is created on the local machine. It is in essence a general purpose proxy server, but especially suited for maintaining a cache of Debian packages.

Design Architecture Fibers
Notes A debian package is available. The python code is discussed on the project homepage. HTTP Replicator was re-written in 2008 to use Fibers, i.e. lightweight threads scheduled through cooperative multitasking, implemented using python generators.
