Sure, that would help, but I'm confused about the webseed: are there
no torrent clients serving the files? My Pi, at least, should be
serving these files: it's a BitTorrent node that serves the weekly
images. Making the archive available was my ugly hack (when I didn't
realize webseeds existed as a concept) to allow anyone to access the
images and restart the swarm whenever they felt like it.
The other option would be to manually trust my self-signed certificate
after sufficient OOB verification. Doing that automatically (over
Monkeysphere or what have you) is something that'd be generally useful
for box-to-box communication later on, and should be pursued by anyone
with time and interest.
