apt source for P2P protocol?


I am sure that a lot of people think to use P2P protocol to download software.

I know how to use bittorrent at network install (or at least where to find procedure).

However, I have not found how to use P2P with apt. (to be precise, how to modify /etc/apt/sources.list)

I need to figure out what I am missing.... I am totally confused....

Not easy to keep track (versions?)? not enough traffic for packages??

Any comment will be appreciated!

Happy Penguins!

Um.. I'm not sure I understand you.

As far as I know, there is no peer to peer method of downloading Debian packages (besides downloading the latest Lenny CD every single day..).

apt, p2p, sourceslist
