I just started the two DVD torrents, x86_64 and i386, using the links in 
the announcement email from this evening, and both are running along as 
fast as my wires will run.

both of these two appear to be using 
http://torrent.centos.org:6969/announce as their primary tracker, and 
both [DHT], local peer discovery and peer exchange protocols are happy 
too.  I've bandwidth limited my torrent to 400kbyte/s in, 50kbyte/s out 
and I'm sseeing just about exactly that (my ADSL is good for peak 
500-600kbyte/sec in and 70kbyte/sec out, so if I don't restrict it, the 
torrent activity just about shuts down my network)
