I did not know where to send this to, that is why you are reading this email, hopefully.
As a daily user of LibreOffice and the BitTorrent-protocol, I am happy to share a little bandwidth 
for this awesome project.
Recently, I stumbled upon a weird failure of your BitTorrent-tracker 
( Using the most recent version of 
BitTorrent/µTorrent, its status changes from "working" to "Your client's "key" parameter and the 
key we have for you in the in our database do not match."
This does not happen when using BitTorrent-clients based on the libtorrent-library (such as Deluge 
or qBittorrent), Tixati or µTorrent 2.2.1.

To replicate the failure, I used µTorrent 3.4.7 (Build 42330). As written above, it works fine with 
µTorrent 2.2.1, although, besides some changes in the UI and probably in the core, nothing big 
should have changed.

Seen from the point of distribution, many people are affected by this bug, as they use the most 
current version of µTorrent/BitTorrent. This also may affect the working transfer between the 
seeders and peers, as the tracker cannot coordinate the seeder to the peer, prevented by the bug 
mentioned before.

Is there an explanation for this status occurring?
To my knowledge (in short), it only affects µTorrent version 3+ or BitTorrent 7.5+.

Best regards,
Henrik Worrmann
