Better join the torrents @ linuxtracker.


See the post earlier today from Sander Lepic in 
"Re: [Mageia-discuss] Mageia-discuss Digest, Vol 7, Issue 32  Torrent File"

He was first, and thoose torrents include index and checksum files so torrents 
are not compatible.
(but of course you can copy over the .iso to continue download/seed)

... it will be much better with an officially released torrent ...

anyhow all six torrents are currently running, but I will later remove the iso 
only torrents @ thepiratebay
