This is a fork of ABTorrent which is a pure Python implementation of a minimal BitTorrent client. The name AutonomoTorrent is short for Autonomous Torrent. Autonomous in this context means "existing or capable of existing independently," which refers to its pure Python nature.
Autonomo came about because I wanted to use BitTorrent in another Python project of mine (AdroitGM), but found that most of the well-known Python clients relied upon Rasterbar's libtorrent which is in C. This worked well for dedicated clients, but all I wanted was a no-frills, good-enough client to integrate into another application for distributed file sharing. I looked at serveral pure-Python projects before settling on ABTorrent due to its minimal featureset, clean code and relatively up-to-date codebase (have a look at the old "Mainline" client code to get an idea of what I was comparing it against).
