Re: Bug#422620: Broken link to torrent files

reassign 422620 cdimage.debian.org

Reassigning to the debian-cd team as that is responsible for these pages.

Thanks you for spotting this. The 'jigdo-cd' page has exactly the same 
issue. The link on the 'http-ftp' is correct but is also much more 
general (and in fact covers all download methods).

I'm a bit confused what is intended here (last testing release or weekly 
snapshots) and wonder if it would not be better to just link to the D-I 
page [1] to offer users the choice between both.

Note that if we do want direct links to weekly torrents here, we should 
limit that to only those images that can be expected to be seeded 
properly (only i386 and amd64 CD), just as we do on the D-I page.
