+This is a fork of the last free GPL version of cdrtools.
+ icedax -- CD audio sampling utility (formerly cdda2wav).
+ wodim -- burn discs in most ATAPI and SCSI CD-R drives (formerly cdrecord).
+ genisoimage -- create ISO9660/HFS/Joliet CD-ROM images (formerly mkisofs).
+CDRKit was forked from CDRTools because of an alleged license
+incompatibility that would make it impossible to distribute
+(combining GPL and CDDL code in the same binary).
+See for more details,
+but note that the issue is not settled - there are arguments
+that the interaction between the CDDL-licensed portion (the build
+tools) and the GPL-licensed portion (the actual code) is such
+that there is no license incompatibility. We at
+are not taking a stance on that - we simply provide the build script
+if you wish to use it.
+This package will conflict with cdrtools - in other words, you need
+to remove cdrtools before installing cdrkit.
+This package will require libcap, cmake, and zisofs-tools, all of
+which are also available in our repository.
+This script will create symlinks for mkisofs and cdda2wav for backwards
+compatability with cdrtools and previous versions of cdrkit.
