do you care to reply at all?
How can you be such an asshole?

I think there's a real need to have an upstream source for cdrtools that
has all the fixes that Joerg doesn't want to apply even not having a
competent reason.

Distributions like SUSE, Fedora, RedHat, Ubuntu, Debian, Mandrake have
many of the patches that Joerg doesn't want to apply and they are
diverging quite a bit. There's a need to create an official upstream
source with all these patches included that will remove work for the
distribution packagers and would allow other distributions to have a
working cdrecord instead the 
broken one that provides Joerg.

Does anyone one know of such an effort to prevent fixes entering cdrecord
because of Joerg?
