Description Richard Jasmin 2015-09-29 20:42:54 EDT
Description of problem:
transmission requires use of a tracker, or multiple trackers even if the torrent is entirely peer exchanged via PEX /DHT. Other clients do not require this. Use of trackers is actually ancient tech and according to many sources PEX/DHT has taken over instead.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
detected in 22

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.torrent something
2.check or modify the trackers for the torrent
(if none are available, transmission will throw an error)
