Very cool. Can't wait to give it a try! I'll probably hold off until the Mini CD comes out. What's the latest on Entropy...will we see that soon?

Anyway, keep up the great work!

haven't managed to even start downloading the torrent yet, despite half an hour on a 100MB connection, must need a few more seeders?

Sorry for the slow seeding speed, I had some sleep so my server wasn't seeding when the torrents were released. The server is checking the torrents now so I should be seeding within minutes.

DL from a mirror now.

I'm running 3.4 loop2 and-

a) Putting the finished DL out as a torrent - I can do this as a stand-alone, but really want it to be part of the general torrent pool.

Q: IS that automatic?

b) migrating loop2 > final. Use the migrator?
