Just FYI, Azureus on Mac OS X will continue uploading until you
manually stop it, as long as you leave the file in the download
folder. But BitTorrent for OS X will upload until you've hit a
pre-specified share ratio (which is pretty low by default; 0.8, I
think) and then stop uploading. Both clients have their advantages
and disadvantages (Azureus in incredibly flexible, but not very
Mac-like and requires multiple steps to initial a download;
BitTorrent is remarkably simple, but not quite as flexible.)

I'm using Azureus for this, and will also keep uploading for a while.
Quite a few seeds and peers, and it's uploading quickly.

I'm also downloading (and uploading) the unna torrent. Not many
seeds, but it's trickling in.

I tried starting a download of the unna mirrors torrent, but no one
appears to be seeding it. If someone can make that available, I'll
continue to seed it for a while.
