Obtain PureOS image iso by torrent?

is there a way to obtain PureOS iso image by way of torrent ?
currently there is only a download button here >> https://pureos.net/download/
torrent is much faster and easier to distribute on the network also gentler on the server.
please make it available for us !

also the date of the latest version should be shown

Version: PureOS 8.0 “Prometheus” Beta 1 - year - month - day (example)

Media size: 1.4 GB

SHA256SUM: File

that would be much better. strange that my firefox browser didn’t warn me when I visited?

yes, an official torrent like other distros have would be most preferrable

@jeremiah any update or are torrent files and onion links still on the roadmap?

To be honest, there hasn’t been a ton of requests for this so it has remained a low priority. I can look into this this week to see what’s involved and come back with a more complete update.

Check this out. This may be a good form of shared income to leverage a co seeding torent of purism apps on lightning smart contract network to support purism costs. Just as an suggestion
