yes wobo, but  except Per Øyvind no one has really answered to my question... 
i think if that if we want Mageia to become the most popular distro over the

updates download, and what's better than bittorrent protocol to use user 
available bandwith to do this? i would like to know:

- if it is possible from a techincal pov
- if it is convenient and useful (overall in a long-term vision)
- if we could plan it for the coming releases (and who could take in charge
