I am currently performing some research at Carnegie Mellon University on

Could you produce a webpage from your research group? I'd be interested in
what kind of work you do.
So, I was wondering if there was any way that I could obtain anonymized
tracker logs of the official Debian torrents. It would be terrific if
these logs went back to the Sarge release, but I know that that is a lot
to ask for. :-)
We don't have those old logs, no.
Even if we can't obtain old logs, perhaps we could arrange for new ones
to be kept suitible for these research purposes.
This could possibly be arranged, I'm Cc:ing the mailinglist to see if
anyone has objections.
