Bug Description

Opentracker is the most professional bittorrent tracker available. It has been used as option of choice for example by thepiratebay.org. But also has use cases in other business or home environments. The biggest feature is it's performance and low CPU usage - best credits for a professional server!

License: Opentracker is Beerware.
Therefore free to package - and with a twinkle to use. (Beerware description from en.wikipedia:
"Should the user of the product meet the author and consider the software useful, he is encouraged to buy the author a beer 'in return' (or, in some variations, drink a beer in the author's honor)."

opentracker just needs libowfat which is a promising library. ( http://www.fefe.de/libowfat/ )
