All three torrents are identical, pointing to the same tracker (linuxtracker). So it's not three independent and isolated swarms.

Time for me to download the new loop and get working on the xdelta3. Although these xdeltas are already quite small!

Re: Sabayon Linux x86/x86-64 3.5 Loop 1: Beta Release

Any idea about a possible xdelta from 3.4f ? Should help with patches to the beta version. As far as I know there won't be any xdeltas. I would expect xdeltas for loop2, but you will need this initial .iso It's still processing but... So far it looks like I can confirm: xdelta from 3.4f to 3.5 Loop...

32bit: Metalink V2 XML <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <metalink version="3.0" ... Well, that's actually 3.0 :) Previous versions weren't XML-based. And I think the other is V2, the old non-XML way. Or could be V1, I'm not sure. You could also put V3 metalinks into a link like that, syntax i...
