[bittorrent] Fwd: Tracker response

In thepiratebay.org, I searched for a torrent with many  seeders and
leechers for testing my client. And  I'm using this torrent:


One thing I realised now it's maybe I'm not sending the correct hash.
This torrent has only one file but the pieces entry's length has 300.
So when I try(in python)

info_hash = urllib.quote( info['pieces'][:20])

maybe I'm getting a wrong hash.
