I am pretty certain I did that i.e. I am seeding using my private torrent, but the public torrent that I am linking to is the guest torrent. If there's anything else I need to do, please let me know.
BTW, I think it would be more intuitive if both the private torrent and the public torrent are presented for download (with appropriate instructions) after a new torrent is successfully uploaded. This will help people who don't use LT regularly to do The Correct Thing. Having to log out to DL the guest torrent is an extra step that could best be skipped.
See the last couple of paragraphs here: http://linuxtracker.org/smf/index.php?topic=41.0
And / or you can see this thread here: http://linuxtracker.org/smf/index.php?topic=14.0
So yes we at LT are pretty slack at making things fool proof - it is so hard to look for these things ?
Mind you LT is no worse than the UBCD Fourms - ie. still having this thread labeled "Please help test UBCD V5.0b2" - when now it has become all about "V5.0b3"
Lastly I have given up, as many other torrent uploaders are doing same/similar things to what you have done. I just don't care how you do it any more.
Re: your BTW - I don't think it ever going to happen. Remember I do not "own" the LT site or its hosting server. The owner is "mcangeli" and he is very busy living his own life out side of the LT (work and family etc). You could try log-in to LT and PM or emailing him about this ? But I think your want for it to be "intuitive" as opposed to reading the forums posts, at this stage of the new LT life would just "over complicate" things for the majority of posters (who read the forums) ?
At the first link above, you will see that I say one should not put "iso" in the torrent name. BUT because the UBCD (final releases) can be either an "iso" or "zip" or Win self-extracting "exe" we allow you to use that in the LT torrent names. In fact for UBCD it is good to differentiate between them. There are a few other things similar to this. In general I remove any reference to "iso" in a torrent name, if that is all there is for that distro's torrent. So just continue naming your torrents the way you have been doing them.
I will go away now
