Subject BItTorrents -- do we care?
Date Mon, 17 Sep 2012 23:13:24 GMT
I've recently seen a few requests for ability to download AOO via a
torrent. something we do not currently provide.

I see that OOo did this for legacy versions:
http://www.openoffice.org/distribution/p2p/

According to the scripts on this page, it looks like it was run by a
"Mike" in the Netherlands (http://borft.student.utwente.nl/~mike).

Is this worth doing for AOO?  Is this critical for any class of user?
Or just "nice to have"?

I'm willing to help seed the torrents if we think there is a definite
need for this.  We'd want a few other volunteers willing to do this as
well.  Of course, ideally we'd have the torrent seeded by an existing
mirror, but that may not be possible.
