#838 closed Enhancement (fixed)

Adding trackers to existing torrents

Reported by: jpiper Owned by: charles
Priority: Normal Milestone: 1.30
Component: Transmission Version: 1.10
Severity: Normal Keywords:
Cc: transmission@…

Description

Hopefully, we should be able to manually add to the list of trackers of running torrents.

When attempting to run a torrent equivalent to one that is already running, we could be given the option to add the tracker(s) from the second torrent to the running torrent (this behavior is found in utorrent on windows)

Excellent job guys!

Is this also covered in these changsets?

That's really something different. Can you put that in a new ticket?

Bah, I have to learn to read. Nevermind.

comment:12 Changed 14 years ago by jpiper

huh? *is confused* :/

I can't program but i guess the current logic is

import torrent -> check hash -> "sorry this torrent allready running"

but the new behaviour would need to be

import torrent -> check hash -> check trackers -> are here are any trackers that differ from previously imported torrent? -> offer to import trackers from new torrent into old

This case (merging trackers of duplicate torrent) is just a bit too obscure and overkill. It's just not worth the effort to implement.

Marking as fixed because 1.3 will have the ability to add trackers to existing transfers.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
