Torrents?

Postby MarisaG » Tue Oct 31, 2017 3:13 am

The download files are rather large. Is there any interest in me setting up a torrent server and seeding them? Would be happy to do it...

I've set it up - the link is in my signature. I do have links in the website, but this is the raw directory view in case your torrent client doesn't work properly...

Would like to make this official. And if you know any other files to be added just let me know!

That's a good idea, we've had a number of folks asking for torrents over the years - but so far, only managed to provide up-to-date binaries "ocassionally".
If this is running on a server, you may want to look at automating the whole thing, so that up-to-date binaries can be provided without that involving any work on your end.

Apart from that, it'd probably be a good idea to also announce this via the devel list and/or newsletter (wiki)
Please don't send support requests by PM, instead post your questions on the forum so that all users can contribute and benefit
Thanks & all the best,

Yes it is on a server, but i don't think there is much need to automate it - updates are only a few times a year, right? I'll post it to the devel and user group... I think I already have the wiki updated.
