[Discuss] magnet links in bittorrent question

Hi All,

My stumbling block is magnet links.  I don?t see any PHP libraries that can do what I want (including the one I wrote long ago, they all seem to use announce urls and torrent files) so I will just write my own.  But I really don?t know where to start.  Sites like this appear to be ancient:  Any tips to something more fresh and with more technical detail?

I want to write my own bittorrent tracker from scratch in PHP.  It will not upload or download anything.  Merely tracks torrents submitted via magnet link.  What do you think?  Has somebody already done this under a free software license?
