how about simply starting rtorrent on the file, without downloading the
planet via any other method first?
(i did this for the first two torrents, btw.)

some brief stats from my view:

the first planet, -04-01, downloaded pretty quickly.
in total, i've uploaded some 15 GB for this file so far, and there's
still somebody leeching it from me, at a rate of some 10 KB/s.

the second planet, -04-08, started to download very slowly, but after
about a day i got some fast seed.
up till now, i've uploaded some 7 GB, with one current peer leeching at
a rate of up to 115 KB/s.

rtorrent reports 4 seeds and 1 leech for each torrent.
