it's not in EPEL (we use RHEL for our servers).
it's java. We have 0 other deployed java applications, so this would be
a very large ramp up for support and management.
it's a gui application, making it difficult or impossible to manage

yeah, this was an option I listed... we could produce the torrent files
and have some other place seed/track them.

From a quick look:
ubuntu and debian both use: tracker version: T-0.3.18 (BitTornado)
It's a MIT licenced fork of bittorrent I think. It's not packaged for
Fedora/EPEL. Looks like the last update on it was 2+ years ago
opensuse I can't really tell.
