No. He is saying that all the many Debian, Ubuntu and RedHat users
that use wodim and find and report bugs are not interested in creating
working CD/DVD. We obvisously only burn CD/DVD to be used as coasters
or they would be using the original software.

I've just added a set of Debian Lenny amd64 and i386 DVDs to my
coaster collection.

They don't work. You didn't use them successfully. You didn't even
burn them as wodim is totaly broken. He told me the same about the
about 1000 dvds I've burned under Debian.

These are not the droids you are looking for. *hand wave*


PS: If I burn a Windows CD with wodim do I violate the copyright?
After all Schilli assured me it won't work so I can't be pirating,
