It would be nice if we could set the blocklist to auto update (every day/week?)

  • Milestone changed from None Set to 1.30
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

We're not going to do this in the GUI, but I've added functionality to make it possible by using a third-party tool or two:

In 1.30 Transmission will automatically notice on startup new/changed files in the `blocklists' configuration folder, and reparse them.

So if you use cron to pull down a new copy of the blocklist and uncompress it in the `blocklists' folder, Transmission will update automatically the next time it's restarted.

titer has given the green light to this feature wrt load & bandwidth overhead on the web site. Since this is so frequently requested, and relatively simple to do, I think we should aim to get this into 1.40.

I don't like the idea of making it configurable though, because that opens us up to abuse w/people updating too frequently. Maybe fortnightly would be a good interval.

If we add periodic updates, we can remove the "update blocklist" button too.
