IMSLP Backup torrent

Postby gchirag » Tue Aug 05, 2008 6:30 pm

I would like to know about the IMSLP Backup torrent as it's a very important matter.

As more and more files on IMSLP which were blocked are becoming un-blocked. How often will IMSLP keep updating the Backup torrent?

The goal is a torrent per week or two, but at this moment the main challenge is to actually make it work, which will hopefully be soon (i.e. within this month).

Any progress on this?

I believe that the availability of a sitewide backup is crucial. The recent unpleasantness should be enough to drive home this point. Other media-oriented projects, e.g. Wikipedia, offer complete downloads to serve the needs of archives and mirror sites. IMSLP should as well, without delay.

Is this this project still alive? On torrent search engines only one file of 23 GB is available (but nobody possesses it, so it's not downloadable). Do you know if other backups exist on internet? Backups for authors would be maybe the handiest thing.
