Always downloading user filelist

Asked by René Pärts on 2011-08-12

Just thought if it's possible to make DC use local copy of some user's filelist instead of downloading every time new one. Sure local copy will get outdated in time, but you can check changes to file with i.e filesize or hash.
This would save a lot of time and bandwidth when downloading folders, especiallty if the user has enormous list.

Your question has given me another idea. It would be nice (just as an option) also match download queue against local filelists. Usually when linuxdcpp searches for alternatives the next thing it does is a raging downloading of filelists for the next couple of minutes.

Agree, this would be also some really nice feature to have.

I'd recommend to file a bug report on DC++ tracker ( It will be changed to wishlist item, if they think the feature would be useful. You can mark the linuxdcpp project also affected.
