stop seeding on ratio and move finished files to dir enhancement | how to implement new features

Description

hello,

this is not some type of enhancement-request but more a question how to implement new features into transmission and help in developing transmission.

i just implemented some new features into the transmission-daemon, namely stop seeding when reaching a ratio and moving torrent-data around on different conditions. i did this by modifying daemon/daemon.c, you can find the patch there: http://trac.freetz.org/ticket/367.

the obvious problem in this approach is: no easy possibility to control these new options via RPC and you have to use the transmission-daemon to gain these new features.

so maybe some of the enhancements would be usable directly in libtransmission - but i'm completely stuck in where a right place for this could be. i'm also not sure whether this type of enhancement is wanted directly for libtransmission, so i ask first for your opinion before giving a shot to understand the libtransmission-code and implement it there directly :)

what is your opinion?

Sounds good to me. We do have a so-far-unimplemented goal of having a "libtransmissionapp" library that goes above libtransmission but below the client application, so I think we're on the same page wrt where these features should go.

Unless you want to start on libtransmission app right off the bat -- which would be fine with me -- feel free to add this code to libtransmission in a new file.

You might want to coordinate with turbo, who has done a lot of work on adding move-data to libtransmission. See ticket #920

Since this question isn't really what trac is for I'm going to close this ticket. Feel free to drop by #transmission on freenode; most of the developers are either there or are idling there.

This is on my TODO - as soon as I've got more testing of my patch at #920.

Don't want to do this automatically until the patch/fix is stable. So please test!
