[Mageia-discuss] Mageia-discuss Digest, Vol 7, Issue 32 Torrent File

Linux Tracker had the dual.  I got a torrent from there for the DVD and gave 
it my ISO file.  It added some data to the ISO, despite an earlier MD5 check.  
I hope that the original being seeded is O.K.  All md5 etc and .txt files are 
included with the torrent, but it was definitely the ISO that was incomplete.
