I would like to see more alternatives than downloading SLAX from an HTTP server and/or mirror. I would like to see SLAX downloadable from P2P, such as Torrents, Magnet links, etc.

Why? What is wrong with the HTTP download?

You could always make a torrent of the default build ISO, upload the torrent to different torrent sites/trackers and host the file yourself if that's what you'd like to see. It's only 200MB.

I assume your new to Slax. You may not be aware but one of the great and clever features of getting it from this website is that you can modify your build to include whichever modules available on this site and download an ISO of your custom build ready to burn or transfer to USB. See build slax - the large swiss army knife icon at the top of each page. Try it. Can you do that with a torrent?

What benefit would you get from it being available from Torrents, Magnet links etc?

The Http server sucks and doesn't keep the connection live. lower end connections will drop the download and its useless. i have one download thats around 90 megs an like 3 others smaller then that. Completely RIDICULOUS SLAX NEEDS TO HAVE THE SMALL MINIMAL DL TORRENT-ED

Benefit: It's faster when it has many seeds.
