Journal: Two Great Tastes That Should Go Together 1

Journal by jklappenbach
Seems to me that the bittorrent protocol would fit nicely with apt-get and its analogs, especially around the time when distribution upgrades become available online. I'm taking a look at the current source for apt to see if there's a way it could be hooked in. I've searched for an existing solution, but perhaps my google-fu is not strong today. If anyone is aware of such a project, I would be interested in learning about it.
