BitTorrent Distribution

Edipo Crispim
Hello,

I have a vps from dremhost, that i installed a bittorrent client.
I use this client for legal torrents, such as ubuntu images (12.04LTS and 12.10) and eclipse packages (Juno SR1).
Most of this file have ratios above 200:
   - Ubuntu-12.10-desktop-i386.iso - 433
   - Eclipse-jee-juno-SR1-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz - 497

So i wanted to try Juno SR2 and add it to my bittorrent client, but i did not found the torrent files.
Will you continue to distribute by torrent?
If so, i would like to know where can i find the files.

Thanks,

Edipo Crispim

In case there are problems or unhappiness among the eclipse project team with the current torrent setup, I'd like to offer terasaur.org.  This is an ibiblio [1] project, which provides both tracking and seeding of torrents.  You can upload torrent data to our server, and we'll seed it.  There's also basic analytics.  For example,
http://terasaur.org/torrent/stats/flightgear-2-10-0-r379/2e22768fd0df1dfcb9c95195e2d97415e4f323b5

Let me know if anyone is interested.  The offer is open to any open source project, by the way.

[1] ibiblio.org is a long time mirror site of lots of linux distributions and open source projects, including eclipse.

Thanks,

-John

Re: BitTorrent Distribution

Eclipse Webmaster (Denis Roy)
John, (and Edipo),

It's nice hearing from you.  As you may remember, we had a Torrent service running here at Eclipse.org, and it integrated nicely with our website downloads (ie, http, ftp and torrent links all had the same real estate on the downloads pages).

After a few years, I had observed that the number of people using BitTorrent for Eclipse downloads had decreased to only a handful.  http downloads are simply "fast enough" for most people, and with fewer users, torrent downloads were actually much slower. So I shut the server off.

Using an external service such as terasaur.org would be nice, and I am very mindful of the bandwidth our mirrors must deploy to support all the OSS communities, but the act of uploading files then trying to integrate external torrent links into eclipse.org just doesn't seem like it's worth it.  This is likely nothing some scripting couldn't fix, but again, many fish, and one heck of a big pond.

I do reserve the right to change my mind at any time, however, especially around release time  :-)  Thanks for your offer to help, and thank you (and iBiblio) for your continued support.

Denis
