Bug#458819: ITP: nettee -- a network "tee" program

Hi Peter,

I had not much knownledge about the torrent protocol and then i have
read about it to compare to nettee.


  - 'BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer file sharing (P2P) communications
  - 'downloads can take time to rise to full speed because it may take
    time for enough peer connections to be established, and it takes
    time for a node to receive sufficient data to become an effective

At first, it appeared to be a good solution by the protocol design goals
but the defficiences for the clone needs (fixme):

  - It was designed to operate in WAN networks where there are high
    latencies and slow bandwith compared to the exactly oppose in the
    LANs. Nettee could make better here.
  - It appears that the initial times to get full download speed is not
    instantaneous (like in nettee) but dependent in a exchange messages
    that would be not necessary.
  - it's a lot complex protocol. Why not make a simple protocol (like in

Nettee is:

  - simple
  - small
  - designed to lans
  - designed to generic proposities and not specific to any operation

A defficience could be the node dead in the chain, but there is
approaches implemented that contour this problems.

Have i convinced you that nettee is cool and that could be offered to
the debian users? And, could you be my sponsor? :)
