Torrent Distribution of Natron


#1

Hi all! First off, thanks to the developers and team who make this project possible! I just had one wish for the project.

Torrent distribution of the releases.

Right now the download is painfully slow at less than 200KB/s (at least here in San Diego). To speed up the download AND save the project bandwidth, I propose we have the main server seed a torrent for each release in addition to direct download. This way the community can help offer their bandwidth by seeding the torrent in addition to the single mirror which will speed up the download of releases. I do not see any downside to this, as long as you release the hash of the file we can be guaranteed that we are downloading the official release from the torrent.

What do you think?

Thanks!
