Re: Apt-Torrent project

This would probably help as long as you didn't abuse super-seeding. One
solution may be to only super seed those packages which are smaller than
some threshold and are also in base or have a priority > standard(or
something). Like most things, the distribution of popular packages
appears to have a zipf distribution(at least, according to popcon), so
you could also gain efficiency by exploiting this data.
That's interesting. At the moment I'm "super-seeding" everything since
my tracker/seeder is running on my own home ADSL connection which is too
slow to run a server even for testing purposes.
Well, I wouldn't edit the Packages.gz file directly since it will no
longer match the hash in the Release file, I would have this in a
separate file, if at all.
Mmmm yes, or use two different lines in the sources.list file. One to
apt-torrent and one regular.
I look forward to trying apt-torrent and hope that it works out well.
Since it appears that you are not a debian developer, are you looking
for someone to package/sponsor this?
That would be very nice.
I've already packaged my program (only for unstable):
Well, I'm a sponsored maintainer (packages gnunet and libextractor). My
sponsor is Glenn McGrath (firstname.lastname@example.org). I'm also in the applying Q
to be DD.
I don't know if we can have multiple sponsors :D ?
