I think there has been a fork from the original cdrecord, and its author, because of some licensing issues. Debian has decided that it should remain as open source software and has removed any code that conflicts with this aim. So it is in flux I believe?
This is not true:

The original cdrtools from


is of course OpenSource ans uses a more free license than earlyer versions.

There are no license issues with the original software and in contrary to the
Denbian "fork", the original is constantly enhanced......


Please don't start a licensing flame-war on this list. We are just the
