find external BT seeders
For future reference: .torrent files are added into pontifex:/var/lib/hefurd and the service needs a restart.
.torrent files can be pulled from mirrorbrain / via the download.o.o iso metalink page
ask for volunteers to seed
The below is old/outdated:
put torrent in separate directories
Torrents are created using /work/cd/bin/torrent-wrapper.pl
This requires make_torrent and dump_torrent from git/libtorrent/examples
To build: zypper in boost-devel libtorrent-rasterbar-devel libtorrent-devel

Yes, torrents are added and seeded.
The description also mentions restarting hefurd, but I found that this is not needed. Instead I did
hefurctl -add-torrent openSUSE-Leap-15.3-DVD-aarch64.iso.torrent
I skipped the ppc64 and s390x isos, as those would not see much traffic anyway.
