I was looking for a torrent for the videos because I didn't want to
wget them with my dsl line disconnecting every now and then. So I
think this would be a good idea.
Why don't you, if you can run a tracker somewhere, start with a
torrents.debian.net and see how it goes. I guess you need some kind of
access control so not everyone can upload a random torrent and so that
enough people can upload a torrent to make it usefull.
