#516 closed Enhancement (wontfix)

http-based seeding

Reported by: dak180 Owned by: charles
Priority: Low Milestone: None Set
Component: libtransmission Version:
Severity: Normal Keywords: http web seed patch-needed


See the full spec here.

This is useful for seeding a torrent without having to run a full client severside.

One of the resons I would like to see this included is I run a tracker that requires clients to be able to do this to have much of a chance of getting what they want.

I'm not sure I see how this would be used by casual users.

If you want to submit a patch against svn trunk libtransmission, I'd be happy to look at it.

The idea is that if a user downloads a torrent with the 'httpseeds' field set, then even if there are no seeds or even no peers at all (or none that they can connect to anyway), they would still be able to download the torrent.

I guess I have reopen the ticket if I want you to see my replies.

If I am able to I might submit a patch, but as they say, ask me for anything but time.

This is a really obscure feature that will not be used 99.9% of the time. Reopen if when you have a patch.
