Adrian, thanks for response.

In general, are there any kind of documentation for Azureus DHT,
PeerExchange and other protocol extensions? I looked for Azureus development
specific mailing list but find nothing ( SF forums seems dedicated for user
help only) - any pointers are very appreciated.

Running a BT-Client only using Mainline-DHT (= No trackers) won't
get you any Azureus nodes (..unless using ut_pex .. blabla..)

Azureus DHT was there before Mainline got DHT support.
I don't know why mainline didn't implement a Azureus-DHT compatible
version.. maybe due to lack of documentation? ;-)

AFAIK only Azureus
