See my comments below ... out of curiosity, I assume it is now too late
to get this in place for F13 due to the infrastructure freeze, even if
you were to use an external (i.e. my) IPv6 tracker?

Weird, the tracker I run is of course far from having the load of the
official Fedora tracker, but it did not crash once for me in the last
seven weeks. Fresh CVS checkout of libowfat and opentracker as of Dec
27th, compiled and running on an amd64 Debian (*hide*) VM. I poll the
statistics with HTTP every minute and it has ~300 peers connected to it.

Yes, it's Java based and even requires X (as far as I know). And I would
not really recommend BitTornado, it's extremely old and doesn't even
expire peer entries correctly as far as I could see.
