Description

On https://tails.boum.org/contribute/how/mirror/automatically_download_and_seed_Tails_over_BitTorrent/ it is said that the DHT is disabled on rtorrent.

As far as i understand it, there is no point on it. DHT allows more decentralization. It reduce the requirement to use a tracker.

It is the same for Peer exchange mechanism.

It should be nice if both can be enabled on this sample configuration file, and the mention to DHT removed from the website.

Agreed. Now that we host this sample configuration file locally, we can even patch it. Care to provide a (tested) patch?
