Subject: FreeBSD Torrent Server

I was wondering if the FreeBSD torrent server will be back online any time soon? Tryed to download version 6.2 and comes server not there.


FreeBSD isn't commercial software, there's no need to go through
all the hocus pocus to conceal the uploader so the RIAA doesen't
sue him.  Standard FTP works perfectly fine at any of the mirror sites,
and you will get your ISO no slower.


The only plus behind using torrents really for getting ISOs is reducing server load on the freebsd.org folks (well, not from a tracker point of view but rather from a network point of view perhaps?). Other than that, not much difference nor much benefit in using that method.

I wonder what the effective overall benefit is though really..
