Just join the torrent please.  The mirrors will have the content and
will open up for direct download at 15:00 UTC on 13-May.  That's when
the infrastructure team will turn on the torrent too.

If you happen to have a local public mirror, it might be faster than
using bittorrent.

If you want to join the torrent as a seeder after downloading the
images from a mirror, you can do that too.  Simply start the torrent,
stop it after it has created the directory structure for the torrent
content, then move your downloaded ISO into that directory, and
restart the torrent.  Viola, you're seeding.
