OK, generated the torrent files, and dumped the hashes to the
opentracker whitelist (upon restart, I got no warnings - that may have
been due to an empty file originally).

Pierre, I used transmission-cli to do this:
for x in *.torrent; do echo -n "$x  "; transmissioncli -i $x
2>/dev/null | grep "hash:"; done

Is there an easy way to test if the tracker is working?
