  Well, description should be the most accurate possible, and if you fill
  in an ITP it means you intends to upload the package soon. Using ITPs
  for only having some packages for you is a bad thing. And for now, it
  seems that libburn is not quite ready, and nobody is using it for any
  program. That's why I asked when you are going to upload it.
 I'm not against you uploading that piece of software. I'm only trying to
 get more info about the package and its status.
