Hi Xice,

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm going to mark this as "Transmission" rather than "Web" since none of the other clients have this feature either.

The other issue is, since there's no way to display the Tracker information in the main window, sorting by tracker seems like it would be of limited use. Filtering by tracker, as it's done in the GTK+ and Qt clients, seems like it would be more useful -- unlike sorting, you wouldn't have to wonder where one tracker list ended and the next began.

Lastly, sorting by tracker gets really weird for multitracker torrents. Years ago there may have been a concept of a "primary" tracker, but since all the major torrent clients now announce to each tier in parallel, there's no way to know which tracker is the primary one for sorting.

So, I don't think this feature would be very useful, and less useful than the filtering model in the GTK+ and Qt clients.
