Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Mark Shuttleworth is trying to entice OpenSUSE developers to join Ubuntu. "Novell's decision to go to great lengths to circumvent the patent framework clearly articulated in the GPL has sent shockwaves through the community.

"This is the same reason Jörg Schillings cdrecord was thrown out of debian, for violating the GPL"

I'm not familiar with this event, so could you please give some references?


Here are some links:

BTW, Ubuntu continues to ship cdrtools/cdrecord.
