Now i know the real story since i've been talking with Debian
Maintainers. So there's isn't anything to say but we are working close
to upstream and they actually offer commit access to maintainers of
another distros. Cdrkit project sounds much more like an open project
than cdrtools so i'll be with them. This was pretty much what happened
with Xfree/Xorg. So cdrtools will be the "close" project and cdrkit the
"open" project. Like i said before Gentoo joined this new project.
Now the license problems are fixed and we can ship this on our portage
tree tarballs for our new releases etc...
The package is in the tree and it's asking for testing before i can
remove it from pkg.mask and provide the cdrtools virtual.
