Investigating it, I see that all three Alpha2 torrents @ linuxtracker include 
the .idx, .md5, and .sha1 files.

That is very nice, and i used to do so earlier, but as the dual @ thepiratebay 
was the single .iso I also put up the DVD isos with only .iso files.

Pity we now have two versions and split swarm.

I will withdraw the iso-only torrents from thepiratebay (but keep seeding)
and upload torrents with same full file content and hash as theese to populate 
same swarms, but i aslo include multi tracker info.

OK, nice.
I did not know about them @ linuxtracker as all i have got last days when i 
try to browse there is "Fatal error: Call to a member function set() on a 
non-object in /home/mangeli/linuxtracker.org/include/functions.php on line 
...re-checking now i realise this only happens using Opera, my primary 
browser, but not Firefox, so I will tell linuxtracker it broke.
