#22247 closed Bug (fixed)

Shouldn't it say "Downstream Caches" instead of "Upstream Caches"?

Description

This section in the document on Django's cache framework mentions that, in addition to the caching provided by Django, other cache systems exist between the user and one's server that may intercept the request; ISP and browser caches are given as examples. From the point of view of the Django-based backend, all those caches are located downstream (i.e., in the direction from server to client). The document, however, refers to them as "upstream".
From the client's point of view, they would indeed be "upstream"—but then again, so would the Django cache :)
For comparison, here is an example of usage of "downstream cache".

It seems the current wording has been in use since 2006, but unless anyone disagrees, I would agree that "downstream" means "toward the client" and upstream "toward the server".
