Bittorrent updating nodes
Also, with Bit Torrent Sync that becomes bandwidth-distributed automatically, like with conventional Bit Torrent Downloads. As I mentioned, if it could be disabled, it’s not a bad feature. happen in this scenario is that you sync changes back from them.
I personally think that this is a great feature that lacks in syncthink vs Bittorrent-Sync fight. Because that would require you to keep track of what files they have, which won’t scale when we’re talking “public”.
I’ve found a similar topic: I'd like to create some semi-public (master) repository, and avoid manual adding a lot of peers to server.
With both Bit Torrent Sync and Dropbox that's "by design".
I’m convinced that such feature would attract 80% users of Bittorrent Sync, and make Syncthing a real alternative to Bittorrent Sync.
I still don’t see how adding options does not fitting with the UI and the code. I didn’t just invented this features, I know this as a user of Bittorrent protocol.
It’d probably be better to start on top of Bit Torrent, if security is anyway not a goal…
Web Torrent is a streaming torrent client for the web browser and the desktop.
With the current UI this could be quite a challenging task.
Not being a developer myself, I do appreciate a clean software design, because I believe it is better to have small tools that do it the right way instead of having a multifunction bastard that does nothing in a good way.
One way sharing is ok as I want to set up a distribution service not a shared folder. I don’t think that not-single writing permission is the necessary option right now, but I wish (not manually) distributed file sharing, if the specified user forgive his privacy. Is auto-discovery is so hard to merge with syncthing?

Mass distribution of content might be a corner case that Bit Torrent Sync covers better than any other tool.
