what? you think if it is non-GPL than it should go to non-free? This is
nonsense. And, please, don't tell me that CDDL is less free than
3-clause BSD, etc. Its OSI approved, therefore it is *free* license. I'd
like to see current Debian leaders to comment on this *political* issue
and stop minority discrimination right there.

dvdrtools - totally useless effort. Besides, its known to be buggy and
linux-only which is against Debian philosophy therefore should never be
in main.

Please, reconsider and instead consolidate your efforts with current
cdrtools project.
