Theo, can you take care of this? Should be enough next week.

I managed to build the required make_torrent and dump_torrent from git/libtorrent/examples
(required zypper in boost-devel libtorrent-rasterbar-devel libtorrent-devel )

but the register_torrent script/binary is missing to tell the tracker, so the .torrent files dont work yet.

Theo also created one and I put it on the server now but I wonder how this is supposed to work. someone would have to seed it actually

#8 Updated by bmwiedemann over 3 years ago

.torrent does not work:
Tracker: [Failure reason "torrent not found"]

so probably the registering in the tracker did not work for Theo either.

This one:
http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/15.0/iso/openSUSE-Leap-15.0-DVD-x86_64.iso.torrent
Is a torrent with 1868 x 2 MiB chunks. And seems to be created manually
in transmission on may 25. Has around 150 in swarm right now.

This one:
http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/15.0/iso/openSUSE-Leap-15.0-DVD-x86_64-Current.iso.torrent
Created automagically with mirrorbrain, is a torrent with 14944 x 256
KiB chunks. Has around 690 in swarm right now.

They both create iso files with the same hashes.

By the way, the tracker doesn't recognize any of them, so all clients
find each other through other trackers or through PEX or DHT.

Please forward to anyone who takes care of torrents or to the hero-list
of the persons taking care of torrents are there.

so any progress here? Do we need the torrents at all?

#11 Updated by tampakrap over 3 years ago

In software.o.o all links in https://software.opensuse.org/distributions/leap point to -Current, eg press "Pick Mirror", you get to https://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/15.0/iso/openSUSE-Leap-15.0-DVD-x86_64-Current.iso?mirrorlist. This also points to the wrong torrent (the -Current.torrent one, that is created by mirrorbrain and it is not working). Can't we have software.o.o to point to the correct locations instead of the -Current ones?

also, it would be good to have a link to the torrent and the magnet next to the links about the direct link, metalink etc
