#2721 assigned Enhancement

When a magnet link has yet to receive its torrent data, adding a torrent file of it should add its data

Reported by: stepstone Owned by: charles
Priority: Low Milestone: Sometime
Component: Transmission Version: 1.80
Severity: Normal Keywords:
Cc: noone3@…

Description

If one adds a torrent file for a magnet link that is already on the transfer list, although not having downloaded the link's torrent information, Transmission bails out with the error message "The transfer cannot be added because it is a duplicate of an already existing transfer." Instead of detecting the torrent file as a duplicate of a magnet link needing torrent information, Transmission should use the information found in the file as a starting point. This would result in quicker-starting downloads in some cases.

Reproducible in: 1.80b3, nightly 9855

Since we're in a bugfix freeze for 1.90 now to meet next week's deadline, I'm punting this feature to another release.
