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?

A now-being seeder... got the torrents from the torrents directory! ;)

eg for windows torrents:

you don't see the torrents, but they are in that directory, they just don't appear in the html page.

If you want to do some seeding, here is a little "_n__ot-server-stressing_" ready-to-use script I made myself. Of course I assume you're on linux and you have qt-transmission installed (otherwise change the script as needed); create your own .sh file, make it executable... and you're done.


 * When you see the "add torrent url" request, you have to add the link
   as above (without the name of the torrent file, and keeping the
   final slash). Also change as needed the "save directory" (you can
   comment that if you don't need it).
 * In your torrent client, remove the option that shows you a warning
   window for each torrent you add.

And ehm... I'm quite sure the script can be improved, but you better not change the --limit-rate and --wait options; those make the script "not server stressing".

# url
echo -n "add libreoffice torrent url, deleting the file name (keep final slash): "
read url_libo_win
# download
cd ~
wget -r --no-parent -A.mirrorlist,torrent --limit-rate=40k --wait=20 --reject exe,asc,html,magnet $url_libo_win
sleep 1
# from internet url to local directory
url_libo_win2=$(echo $url_libo_win | sed "s/http:\/\///")
# deleting unwanted files + launching torrents with qt-transmission + moving to a "save" directory
cd ~/$url_libo_win2
sleep 1
rm *.mirrorlist *.asc.torrent
sleep 1
transmission-qt *.torrent
sleep 60
mv *.torrent /your/save/directory/
