Both Ktorrent and Qbittorrent can upload parts of a torrent without
waiting for all of it to download, which is fairlt important to how BT
works. If your client isn't doing this then check the settings. You may
be limiting it for bandwidth reasons.

A word on terminology: BT clients (and torrent sites) talk about Seeders
and Leechers. The only difference between the two is that Leechers are
still downloading part of the torrent, while Seeders have finished
downloading. Both types are uploading.
