I can provide a patch if given advice on how to obtain suitable magnet

Following the example on <https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-librejs/2016-04/msg00008.html>, I managed to generate a magnet link:

wget https://cecill.info/licences/Licence_CeCILL-B_V1-en.txt -O cecillb.txt
transmission-create cecillb.txt -o cecillb.txt.torrent
transmission-show -m cecillb.txt.torrent

I'm not familiar with bit torrent enough to know whether the bith is reproducible on a different machine.

More broadly why are magnet links used? I can see it provides both a hash and a way to get the license, but I also notice reports in the mailing list about these links not having seeders. So if it is just for hashing, maybe a hash of the license file is sufficient.
