What should I seed?
 
I'm thinking of seeding a beta or developer intended release of a distro. I am wondering which one, I am currently seeding edgy ubuntu and edgy kubuntu. What else would help? I like seeding because I feel it helps in some aspects, I mean an extra 40KBps download helps.

What is seeding?
 
I don't know this term---is seeding something to do with downloading?

Are you asking what Distro to download?

Seeding is to do with BitTorrent. Seeds are people who have the whole file available for upload rather than just bits (these are called peers). This might be wrong, but I know it's something like that.

Since Debian does not have big corporate servers like the commercial supported ones have, I'd pick that one. At this time, only the full cd or dvd sets are seeded for testing(etch).
