I think this mailing-list is the right one where I can post this
message.  Please forgive me if it's not the case, and then tell me
where to discuss about that.

The GNU project seems to lack a command-line CD player.  I am
maintaining one, called "cdcd", which has a homepage hosted at Sourceforge.  Would that

library, and am looking for a decent CD database system.  libcdaudio
supports CDDB and CDIndex, but CDDB is badly designed and CDIndex is
probably going to be replaced by MusicBrainz; look at for more info.  MusicBrainz seems to be a

MusicBrainz seems well designed, although I haven't taken a close look
