Metatorrents - torrents pointing to other torrents

Postby d33 » Tue Nov 04, 2014 6:22 pm

Here's my excerpt from IRC that didn't seem to get any attention:

18:03:15 d33tah $ hello
18:03:52 d33tah $ i have an idea for a torrent extension and i wanted to create a reference implementation for Transmission, but wanted to ask Transmission developers first what they think of it
18:04:15 d33tah $ my idea is to add support for "metatorrents", which would in their metadata have information about which torrents to download and what files to pick from them
18:04:39 d33tah $ so that if you want to create "my favourive mp3s" collection, you could use better seeds instead of adding redundancy
18:09:17 d33tah $ favourite*
18:11:53 d33tah $ would you be interested such a feature?

I already started a bit of the implementation and did quite a lot of thinking, so I can provide the details if you're interested.

sounds interesting,
especially if it's still possible to add some own files in addition to these "picked" files
