Re: Jigdo - A Professional Letter to Mike McGrath

judge jigdo a success if a certain % (compared to bittorrent) use jigdo. What % would that be?

Jigdo would in this case be particularly useful to those with a local mirror as they have 99% of the content already (90% if you have F9T3?). Because it is particularly useful to some, and completely weird and strange for others, the number of users that will use it if BitTorrent is an alternative wouldn't be a very good indicator to see if it is actually a viable distribution method for the whole of Fedora, neither is it the goal for these proposals.

I'm talking specifically about people going to the get-fedora page and clicking on the torrent link vs the jigdo link. Out of every 100 people, how many people will click on the jigdo link?

Given the choice to download, say, the Fedora 9 i386 vanilla DVD, frankly, I expect only people that know Jigdo, or want to get to know Jigdo as it may have some benefits for them, and want to use it, are going to use it, so in all my optimism:

roughly 10 out of a 100.

For other spins without regular bittorrent seeds obviously the rate is 100%, and some of the people that get to know Jigdo that way will be using it again for our respins, and if possible, again for other spins (non-Everything?), and again, and again.

Kind regards,
