	"These are a few BitTorrent .torrent files for demonstrating
that distribution of both KDE and GNOME distfiles through BitTorrent
is easy. Packages should be the next logical step. :)"

	This is a proof of concept of what could be done
with BitTorrent. We are distribution most of the latest distfiles
for both GNOME and KDE. That should prove to be a nice trial.

	Please, contribute by seeding because there are only
a few us right now and the bandwidth is not that great. This is a
proof of concept that should not last more than a couple weeks.

	The tracker has been kindly provided by kwm and bandwidth
is being donated by users from their homes rather than institutions.
If you have a good connection, help as you can. :)

	This trial will be evaluated at the end by analyzing the
tracker logs. Suggestions are welcome on how to process the data
and what outputs would be most useful.

	This could be the beginning of a new official distribution
medium. Please, help out by seeding for as long as possible. Pass
the word around, we want a nice try so grab what you want.
