I can tell you that this machine I type on is seeding one of those right now.
The status summary tells me this:
Got a list of 38 peers 1 minute ago
Asking for more peers in 13 minutes
Tracker had 45 seeders and one leechers 59 seconds ago
Asking for peer counts in 29 minutes.
Can you tell us more about your software? What BT client/server are you using?
What does your software tell you about debian's tracker and/or torrents --
is there some message or status, or just "doesn't work" ? It is not correct
that there is not one seeder, at least on the one I am personally seeding.
