Otherwise that could be always left on by default and warn the user when
the disk write is completed that the disk used burnfree at least once
and may not be conformant.

Anyway I'd like to know the actual reason to turn burnfree of by default
from Joerg.
This has been discussed many times, check the archives.....
If burnfree is on, the quality is
lower and the first technology
in this area did turn it off by default and the standard says it is
off by default and....

If you don't know, why do you answer at all?

If you know please say so! For the love of God!

In my opinion, not a competent reason.

Why 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?

If you don't like it, write your own. While I disagree on a number of things, it's his program, he's maintained it for years and it works really well. If you want burnfree on, turn it on and stop whining. He gave you the way to get around it, and he supports the ide-cd interface although he whines on that one.

I think pro-dvd should be scrapped or marketed competently also, but I'm not going to start a project to do it. The fixes to get bad firmware working are HARD, and Joerg does them right if possible. I'd like a single version, but not if it comes from someone who isn't tracking the guts of the official cdrecord.
