  Version         : 0.0.16

  Description     : BitTorrent tracker for the Apache2 web server

mod_bt is a BitTorrent tracker for the Apache Web server. It is written in C
and runs as an Apache 2.x module. It is possible for mod_perl or PHP to
directly access the tracker's information; no need to download and bdecode
scrape URLs. The tracker is fully configured from within Apache's own
configuration file. The goal of mod_bt is to seamlessly integrate Bram
Cohen's BitTorrent protocol with Apache so that any Webmaster who serves up
large files can shift the burden of bandwidth onto its clients with as
little hassle as possible.
