I propose we use this patched planet.sh, mktorrent and transmission-remote/daemon to serve planet.osm and changesets by bittorrent.

 http://mktorrent.sourceforge.net/  https://trac.transmissionbt.com/

Bittorrent is fast, reliable, decentralized and mirrors would profit from faster release time of files.

I've implemented proof-of-concept (with IPv4+IPv6, webseed and RSS) at  http://osm-torrent.torres.voyager.hr/

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to wontfix

Resolving this since external services are handling torrenting the planet files.
