This tracker is also often listed as http:// sometimes in the same torrent it is listed as both http and udp =. This tracker is VERY common in public torrents since it is generally open and free to use.

That's why it's still open...

It's still not fixed because the libtransmission code to work with UDP trackers is built around requiring a tr_session, which doesn't really make sense in transmission-show.

So the libtransmission/announcer-* code probably needs to be refactored to be more independent, which is a lot of work for a low-priority ticket.

I'm not saying that it'll never get done; just explaining why it hasn't been done yet.

Patches are welcomed. ;)
