Fedora is released on bittorrent at the same time it's released on ftp. Details are at http://torrent.fedoraproject.net/ . One minor difference between the torrent and ftp is that many people involved in the release seed the torrent ahead of time, so there is a reasonable cloud when we announce it.
Since the release on the 20th, the the various FC5 torrents have had roughly 55000 downloads, totalling nearly 165 terrabytes of data transferred.
Believe me, we know about bittorrent.
