The really interesting thing about jigdo is not load balancing, but
reusing existing files.
Ah, I see. Thanks for the explanation. In this case, it seems dubious
to me that much advantage will be gained for TeX Live for normal users.
We update the ISO image once a year or so, and lots of the files change.
I don't have the slightest clue, what "utp" might be :-),
I was copying from the mail the bittorent volunteer sent me; now that I
look at it again, I expect it's a typo for udp.
"http", on the other hand, doesn't link to a web server serving the
Drat. All I did was post what the fellow (Steve Humber) sent me; it
probably worked back then, but apparently no more. I don't have the
means to check it out myself, I know very little about bittorrent. I'll
write him and we'll go from there.
