    The community that decides to participate. Please feel free to check out openFate.


    Well, yes really, oS is repackaging Wodim which is Debian's fork of cdrtools that only exists because Debian's maintainers of cdrtools had issues with Joerg Schilling and his build system, a build system which could have been replaced without the ensuing drama.
    And so it goes.
    Ummm no, it has NOTHING to do with the build system. It has to do with his cdrtools licensing. Feel free to search up Joerg's posts in the oS mailing lists. His troll posts are found in any one of them quite regularly.

      Feel free to read up on cdrtools relicensing to cddl. There is even a wikipedia note on it.

        Actually, it had everything to do with the build system.

        Joerg had licensed his build scripts under the CDDL soon after the license was written which is what caused the initial bru haha within Debian. He didn't relicense any other part of cdrtools until Debian had flamed him publicly about it for several months.

          That still makes it a license issue, not a code issue.

            *sigh*

            Care to point out which part of this:

            says it was a code issue?
