Torrent default app decision:We're in :)
Monsoon seems the more dynamic app, good response from its maintainer
Transmission seems to have a better UI, actively developed, although a bit mac centric
BitTorrent-gtk very basic but should work for basic needs
AI: add both monsoon and transmission, monsoon as default
AI: suseROCKS to run tests with both apps
AI: FunkyPenguin to package Transmission today
AI: vuntz to move Transmission and monsoon to autobuild and drop gnome-btdownload
Monsoon had an open bug report on making it translatable, after the above decision was made, the priority on translations became pretty critical ;) Meebey volunteered to go and get translations all set up and spent a few hours yesterday getting that all sorted and creating the first translation (German). Olivier Dufour, who created a Winforms based GUI for MonoTorrent has also volunteered to do a French translation.
So, if anyone out there wants to translate Monsoon into their native language (or at least one they're good at ;) ), please join us on our new irc channel, #monsoon on irc.gimp.net/irc.gnome.org. We'll get you sorted out.
