[SOLVED] ISO download page magnet links are outdated

Hi there! Torrent files and magnet links for latest release ISOs on https://www.archlinux32.org/download/ are outdated compared to those available on https://archlinux32.agoctrl.org/archisos/. Page needs update. I hope this is the right place to report.
If there is some way users can help keeping it up to date (wiki, git, etc), let us know.

Yes, this is true. I wonder conversely whether it's worth even keeping the magnet links.  This is a small community, and the number of people that get new iso's must be pretty small.  Even a home box over A/VDSL should have enough bandwidth for that I'd have thought these days.

Thank you, levi.

As I was guessing while looking to download the latest ISO, this looks like a small community, albeit a very useful one.
Since small communities lack financial backing as opposed to big, more mainstream distros, I think that allowing downloaders to also host the images on BitTorrent would be helpful. Indeed, I've left my ISO torrent available to help with distribution with my excess, idle bandwidth. I encourage you to keep BitTorrent as a distribution method to allow users to join a no-permission-needed bandwidth contribution effort.

Also, is there any easy way for users to help with updating the page?

Well, to be fair I don't know how one would go about creating a magnet link.  Surely there's some complexity there that could be done by a user, but the final step to update the webpage would need to be done by the website maintainer I think.

The ISO building process is a little bit in fixing mode currently (hence only the .pre image at the moment).
Usually the whole process of building an ISO and updating all artifacts like web page, torrent links, checksums is automatized.

The torrent networks is not really big and only the newest ISO archlinux32-2022.02.01-i686.iso
