would it be possible to get the version of Squid bumped up to what
upstream suggests as stable?

Version | Latest Release
4.0 | 14 Oct 2015 | 4.0.1
3.5 | 01 Oct 2015 | 3.5.10

The current Version in Leap is 3.3.13-1.2, which was released before May

I'm not involved really in squid but some general remarks:

The current version of squid in Leap is provided by SLE12.
-> this means; it is maintained by SUSE in the enterprise space
which means at least something

Since Leap was pulled from SLE it could mean two things: 1: There
actually is a reason to Keep the Version from SLE or 2: nobody
bothered yet to upgrade it yet.

Now the usual questions to be answered are:
- which advantages does an update have?
("a newer version is available" is probably not enough of an argument)

New Versions usually bring bug fixes and security fixes. Aside from
that, the Squid Team itself suggests upgrading.
From The Freenode IRC Channel: * Topic for #squid is: Don't ask to
ask, just ask and wait. PasteBin squid.conf if need be. | Or try | |
Please upgrade to Squid-3.5.10 or 4.0.1 beta

The ChangeLog (which seems to be an actual Code Diff is about 973
lines Long:
The first 30 lines of the Change Log are good enough a reason for me
to request an upgrade :-)

- which version is in Factory?
(3.5.10; this would fit your expectation)

3.5.10 would be good. Perhaps the Squid Package could be split into
squid3 and squid4 to provide both Versions.

- will the openSUSE community do the maintenance for 3.5.10 for the
Leap lifetime?
(for this asking on the mailing list only helps partially)

If not on the Mailing list, where else?

-> first approach would be to ask the openSUSE maintainer:
osc maintainer -e openSUSE:Factory squid
what he thinks about it and depending on the answer more discussions
might be required.

I'll ask them.

Thanks for your quick Feedback.
