Eclipse BitTorrents?

Antoine made me do it, I swear.

I set up Osprey, a BitTorrent permaseed/tracker developed by iBiblio.  It's still in its early stages, but you can see what it looks like (and even seed a download).

Please help me test this thing:

Eclipse SDK 3.4.2 torrents

Nice! Thanks for doing this Denis. There could be some interesting potential here given that there's a BT ECF provider which means in theory, we could transparently get p2 to use this for downloads.

This is a great idea :)
I have a problem though : I'm trying to download eclipse-SDK-3.4.2-linux-gtk.tar.gz.torrent using Transmission 1.34 (6778) on Ubuntu 8.10, but I'm stuck at 0% and no seeds.

Hum ... later on 2 peers connected and I was able to finish the download.
Still, isn't the permaseed supposed to solve the 0 connected seeders problem ?

Apparently the version I installed is oldish and quite unstable. I'll be moving to the newer version shortly. Thanks for all your help!
