Hi Tim,

Well, I really this but right now you can not distribute those files.

Look this started as you wanting to give a disk to some friends - how it
got to be a formal project release in some peoples mind I don't know -
it would be great to make this into a community release (meaning some
people working on something that conforms to the TDF guidelines for
preserving that organizations brand and logo - the files you have do not
do that.

Also, there are files there that IMO can not be released as you do not
have the right to do so. (only a couple of those that I can see)

So - what I am asking is for folks to stop, really just stop and start
over with looking at what you are doing.

Then please get off the international list, unless you want to be a
formal project at the TDF level in which case much will need changing,
both in content and process, and as I've told you - I doubt the idea
effort would be allowed, it's that's simple.

If you want a disk for hand out by YOU great, but then it needs to be
branded for YOU. If you want to work on a local community disk that is
great, then it needs to be branded as a Community effort vs a TDF
effort. (only the German club seems to be capable of deciding on their
own what is TDF official - BTW)

  7 to 10 hours to upload the file at max upload speeds is not my idea
P2P files, but could work one-to-one maybe.

True. The initial seed (n = 1) will be slow. When n>   1, there will be a
shorter duration. We want to ensure that n>   0.  I expect that TDF will
in that regard.


  I still do not know "what" you are saying.  I do not know about .torrent
seeds, etc..

Holycrap. I had a whole reply that had links to wikimedia about this, but I
cannot find it now. Of course you don't know all this stuff. I'll try to
figure out what happened to that post. Damn. It took quite some time to
write it.

If you wish, you can send the info to me of the list at 
"". I do not remember seeing the wiki links 
either.  I do not want to host the ISO file here [if I can use .torrent 
with my system and/or hosting account], plus how long would it take for 
someone to download a 4+GB file through .torrent?

Personally the big problem is the limited upload speed from my computers 
because of the 120 KB/s for Time Warner Road Runner Cable Modem 
broadband Internet access.  It is great downloads but the slow upload 
speed and the file size limit [not stated as far as I can find] of under 
1 GB uploaded and/or stored on my hosting account with  
They want me to not have a repository type of account.  So not ISO 
files, but I can have the same folders/files as a web site.  So at least 
people can test drive the demo version of the DVD.  Now I need a way to 
get the ISO file, when it is ready to comes out, to a hosting account so 
people can download it at their leisure and others to take the ISO file 
and make DVDs to be mailed to those who either cannot download the ISO 
file or their their access speed is to slow for a 4+ gig file size.

If it comes down to it, I may have to take the folders and archive each 
and then have them listed on a web page with instructions on where those 
folders go in the DVD file/folder structure.  Then the person will need 
to download all the archives, unarchive them.  Build the DVD and "burn" 
it into an ISO.  Then that person with their FTP access can upload it to 
their system so we all have access to it.  Of course, it may be easier 
for me to have temporary FTP account access to upload the DVD myself, or 
snail mail the DVD to the proper access person.  It would be a long 
snail mail trip to go from New York State in the USA to Germany, or any 
city in Europe.
