When I just now tried the torrent download, there were 19 seeders.

Where did they get the torrent from?

I did not see anything on the Download page providing any link to it or
encouraging any would-be seeders.
Since the torrent link is live, maybe it would be worth adding something?

Who is responsible for generating the torrent for each release anyway?

Any reason why you do not want to download the "normal" way? I have never tried the torrent downloading for LO, so I do not know what to say. It is much easier to do a direct download from one of the mirrors.

IT is 8 or 9 pm at the server site, so I do not know if the admin will be available to fix the torrenting issue at the server end till the morning.

As for "who". . . well I cannot answer that. One of the guys who does the server work [almost all are volunteers] is getting over a heart attack. Actually, I do not know if there is one set guy that sets up the originalseed, but it is up to others do have it seeded on their personal systems and keep the torrent package running in the background so others can access it from their seeding.

Personally, I never leave a torrent package running anymore. It is against my security policies.
