There is a bug report filed against xmcd requesting that it use the free
cddb database instead.  I intend to do this when I do the next upload of it
(which may be some time as there is a fair bit to do and I'm busy (like
everyone else)).

Subject: Bug#75308: please support freedb.freedb.org
From: Sean Perry <shaleh@via.net>
Date: Sat, 21 Oct 2000 12:48:19 -0700
To: Debian Bug Tracking System <submit@bugs.debian.org>

Package: xmcd
Version: 2.5pl1-7
Severity: wishlist

Now that cddb has gone commercial, please support freedb.freedb.org, it is a
100% free and open replacement for the commercial cddb database.  There are
instructions there for xmcd.
