Description

It was requested in the forums and brainstorm http://forum.transmissionbt.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=200 http://forum.transmissionbt.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6393 http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/idea/13980/

We could show something like: "Downloading to %1$'d of %2$'d connected peers (%2$'d seeders)" "Seeding to %1$'d of %2$'d connected peers (%2$'d seeders in total)"

The "seeders" stat is available in the tr_stat struct (transmission.h), so the main difficulty is to find a way to show this information on the main dialog without overloading the UI

This is unnecessary and just makes the text harder to read at a glance. Use the inspector for this information.

There were over 40 votes for this on Ubuntu's brainstorm page. Maybe this should at least be an option for the gtk+ client

Could we think about a way to display it nicely ?

Seeding to %1$'d of %2$'d connected peers (%2$'d seeders in total)
Seeding to %1$'d of %2$'d connected peers (%2$'d seeders / %2$'d leechers)
Seeding ( %2$'d / %2$'d connected peers, %2$'d seeders / %2$'d leechers)
Seeding : %2$'d peers (%2$'d connected) , l:%2$'d / s:%2$'d )
... there are many ways, they are not all appropriate but there must be one !

Ticket #2115 is a close cousin of this ticket.

Now that we announce to multiple trackers, each tracker returns back seed/leech counts. We have no way of knowing how many seeds and leeches overlap from tracker to tracker, so our counts don't mean much.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
