yum-torrent - download packages via http and peer-to-peer
yum-torrent extends the behaviour of yum by downloading then seeding packages via BitTorrent. Once installed and configured, the plugin works transparently.
yum-torrent makes extensive use of cache files. The BitTorrent client's cwd is set to the root of the cache by default. All generated .torrent files are guaranteed to contain files in subdirectories. Once a torrent download is complete the files are hard or soft linked to the path in /var/cache/yum where yum will look before starting it's own downloads, bypassing it. yum-torrent will automatically clean up unused files and directories left over from previous runs. /var/cache/yum_torrent/torrenthash.torrent /var/cache/yum_torrent/torrenthash.torrent.log /var/cache/yum_torrent/path/to/package.rpm /var/cache/yum/repo/packages/package.rpm
