List of projects accepted into Metalink
Metalink is dedicated to improving downloads and making it easier for people to download open source software. Advanced download features are automated so the download experience is seamless. These features include mirror/CDN usage, error repair, P2P integration, digital signatures, and more.
Metalink increases the effectiveness and efficiency of downloads by combining the speed, bandwidth distribution, and redundancy of an optimized hybrid mirror/peer-to-peer network, without any questions of legality, integrity, or safety.
Metalink was standardized as RFCs in the IETF and has been adopted by over 40 programs, such as DownThemAll! (a Firefox extension), KGet (the native download manager of KDE), and many others.
