i'm the current developer of libburn and libisof.
Please Cc me with replies.
Be invited to re-use the descriptions of the Debian packages:
Description: library to provide CD/DVD writing functions
libburn is a library for reading, mastering and writing optical discs.
Supported media are: CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-RAM, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD+R/DL,
DVD-RW, DVD-R, DVD-R/DL, BD-R, BD-RE.
Description: library to create ISO 9660 images
libisofs creates ISO 9660 (aka ECMA-119) filesystem images which can either
be written to POSIX file objects or handed over to libburn for being written
directly to optical media.
It can read metadata of ISO 9660 filesystems, manipulate them, and use them
to produce new complete filesystem images or add-on images to be appended
to the read filesystem image.
Supported extensions to ISO 9660 are Rock Ridge, Joliet, AAIP, zisofs.
Well, the synopsis of libburn could need a "/BD" added to "CD/DVD".
The current cdrskin description of Debian is too technical and too historical.
I will change it to:
Description: command line CD/DVD/BD writing tool
cdrskin strives to be a second source for the services traditionally
provided by cdrecord. It writes data sessions to CD, DVD, or BD media.
To CD media it may also write audio sessions.
Multi-session is possible on all media types except DVD-R DL and
fastly blanked DVD-RW.
This is a burner-only application. If you want a burner and ISO 9660 image
manipulation application, please install the xorriso package.

Hrm, yes, the wiki pages are too verbous for the purpose of a package

Just ask your friendly upstream. :))

It's historic. 10 years ago, the world was full of cdrecord forks.
The author of cdrecord accused the forkers of stealing his work.
cdrskin is not a fork but rather an emulation. I stole only the
option names and their help text lines.
Have a nice day :)
