Torrent Distro - FreeBSD

I was wondering if you wonderful people at FreeBSD have considered releasing FreeBSD as a bit torrent. I recently visited the slackware site and they provide links to torrents for the ISO CD images. I thought it was a really good idea and the download times were awesome. Don't worry FreeBSD is still my choice for easy of use and stability. Just a suggestion.

    although the only place it appears to be mentioned (other than the
    archives of the mailing lists) is in the 5.3 release announcement:
    [url]http://www.freebsd.org/releases/5.3R/announce.html[/url]
    and perhaps recent 4.x announcements, I didn't look there.

    I guess the Handbook and a few other places haven't been updated yet, or
    I missed it when I looked at them. Maybe among all the other things I
    want to get done tonight, I'll find time to file a PR on that (if it
    hasn't been done already).

    Yes. The latest release is certainly available as a torrent, and
    doented as such in the release announcement:

    [url]http://www.freebsd.org/releases/4.11R/announce.html[/url]

    Release via torrent is still considered experimental, which is
    probably why it isn't mentioned more prominently on the web site.

    See:

    [url]http://people.freebsd.org/~kensmith/4.11-torrent/[/url]

    5.3-RELEASE is also available as a torrent.

    Cheers,

    Matthew
