Has a 32-bit torrent even been set up? The only thing I see on Linuxtracker is 64-bit.

Don't know. The link I gave is Jerry's Dropbox file.

I've been seeding the 64-bit since M11 went final and the 64-bit torrent was set up. For reasons that I cannot explain, I've never once been able to get a torrent set up on Linuxtracker, so I was hoping someone would get that done so I can start seeding 32-bit. I know I can get a number of people pulling from that as soon as it's set up. I'd like to get the folks I know are likely to grab it using the torrent before it hits DW and the mirrors get hammered. Warren should also include the torrents in his announcement, or at least let Ladislav know they are available.

It is a timing and coordination issue. Torrents are generally set up by users after the release and no one has asked Warren to hold off on the announcement until they are available, as far as I know.

C'mon, Torrent Team! Somebody get a 32bit torrent up ASAP! That's your job.

This has got to change...

Thank you to Jerry3904 for uploading the torrent, and thank you uncle mark for the link. I got the xdelta patch and did that bit yesterday and have been waiting for someone to put the torrent up. I was reluctant to - from remarks here and on Linux Tracker, and the lack of an announcement on Distro Watch, I wondered if maybe it hadn't been released to the general public yet, so didn't want to jump the gun by posting it myself.

And thanks again for the xdelta lesson yesterday - that's just plain slick!
