Hey. So all this attention from the list has seen a FreeBSD user make a port. This
is his first freeBSD package (yay for 2 causes!).

We've been communicating on IRC, and he would like for some of you kind folks to
test the package before its submitted for inclusion into the actual BSD tree.

Basically, all that is required to minimally get things running is that you have
python2.2 available in your ports tree. (for X GUI u'll need wxpython2.3 for
python2.2 (which the package DOESNT require), but there are still 2 nice command
line interfaces: btdownloadheadless.py, and btdownloadcurses.py).

Again, feel free to bombard this freeBSD5.0 torrent with your bandwidth as a test
after you test out the port at http://tacos.sus.mcgill.ca/~hperes/BT_BSD5.0/.

Andre is the porter: andre@netvision.com.br 

Join us on irc for any more questions about BitTorrent :  irc.freenode.net #bittorrent
