Some time ago there was an idea to use BitTorrent together with poldek to distribute PLD package files. And today I saw this. Maybe I will have to look into this issue after my exams, could be interesting. Generating .torrent files for new packages would be easy, seting up the tracker also, the problem is - how to keep seeders for thousands of packages on one machine? Poldek supports various download managers so downloading will be no problem on this side I think. Of course this could speed up download for the bigger packages, for the small one the advantege wouldn't be so good but it's worth a try...
