In the interest of making it easier for those of us with fast connections to seed all releases, it would be useful to syndicate torrent or magnet links via RSS. Example:

The software that FreeBSD is using to provide this service is

I use flexget for similar broadcatching functionality.

I am new to the community, so I look forward to feedback, help, guidance, or a shove off a cliff.

1. The XBNBT project is a bit aged, but I have compiled the basic server on OI_151a4 (little or big endian) with success.

2. I have been reviewing the aged licenses (they are attached) and I do not currently see an issue at present with re-distribution.

3. As a full product package, XBNBT really requires MySQL, PHP, and Apache (which I am about to work with). From a packaging standpoint, XBNBT can work all by itself as the "web piece" is for pretty stats, etc.

4. The end-game. If I am able to build this into a package with its original licensing, documentation, etc - will I have wasted my time or is this something that can be offered as a repository package for the SunOS/illumos/OI offerings?

Look forward to the feedback and will continue on to the next phase of local compilation, testing, and so on.
