This is a serious blow to the OSS DVD extensions objective :
"The objective is to give cdrtools dvd extensions without imposed limits,
and also to have a Open Source solution to burn dvd's. "
"The OSS DVD Extensions for cdrtools are licensed under the GNU Public
As cdrtools itself was GPL Licensed, the combination with OSS DVD
extensions supplied a popular solution for GPL-ed DVD burning on Linux
machines. I guess not so anymore. I wonder what Schilling's motives and
objectives are for this move. I invite him to make a proper and honest
motivation for selecting the CDDL license for cdrtools, as on his webpage
seems to lack essential details on this.
