How is maximum seed time measured?

Asked by Jordan Bradley

In KTorrent, if you go to "Settings", "Configure KTorrent", "Queue Manager", there is an option for "Default maximum seed time" whose default is "No Limit". If I click the little up arrow the value changes to 0.05. My question is: Does that mean 0.05 of an hour? If so would that be 5 minutes or 3 minutes (60 * 0.05)?

I'm not familiar with ktorrent, however try hovering over the control, you might see this tooltip?
