Dear All,
I have the following question:
A new peer contacts the tracker specifying the event "started", and the tracker returns a response with a peerlist.
Now the peer start to make connections with the peers in the list and the process begins. 
At each interval of time, the peer contacts the tracker again.
Does the tracker send a new peerlist at an announcment with empty event? If yes, does the peer make new connections after receiving the new peerlist or what? And what is the default interval? is it 1000?
Net yourself a bargain. Find great deals on eBay.
