    Hmmm, it seems that the matter is so complicated that even you don't know what's
    going on ;-) The latest issue of Debian Weekly News explicitly mentions that
    cdrecord has to go to non-free unless the license additions get changed.

    > Let me comment what SuSE is currently doing with cdrtools:

    You accuse Linux distributors of being non-cooperative, but I think that the
    major cause of not cooperating is that just everybody in the Linux world does
    not share your set of dogmata, the recent discussion about addressing devices
    being a prime example. Although I very much appreciate your experience with
    CD recording, I feel that the ways of referring to devices should be best
    left to Linux developers.

    (BTW: I am not sure I haven't missed anything in the long cdrecord-related
    threads on the LKML, but I still haven't seen what is exactly so broken on the
    cdrecord shipped by SUSE.)

    Have a nice fortnight
