I just received this email about udftools :


Hi Matthias,

At least the listinfo/mailman page says that's what your name is. ;-)  I'm
a list subscriber, but I am also  interested in seeing udftools get
for Fedora.  As of kernel version 2.6.10 there is a new module called
which supports packet writing(udf) to CD-RW media.  I believe that is what 
Jon Roland is referring to in his post:

As it happens I have been trying to learn how to build rpms from scratch
this seemed(at first glance) to be a simple enough one to start with. 
I had already built the package from the source tarball with the patch from

Peter Osterlund's website:

I decided to try and package it myself.  The attached files contain the 
results of the first build that I've gotten to run to completion.  It
been tested yet and I'm sure the spec file needs work.  I cobbled it(the
file) together from an old Red Hat contrib package and a current Mandrake 
package.  But, if you think others might be interested, please pass it

Thank you,

John Treacy


So I was wondering... should udftools go into Extras, or into Core? Since
support for packet writing has been included in the kernel, I'd favour Core
(and this is why I'm posting here).
Oh, and I've even found some old udftools packages made by someone @rh :


Clean custom Red Hat Linux rpm packages :
Fedora Core release 3 (Heidelberg) - Linux kernel 2.6.10-1.760_FC3
Load : 0.12 0.42 0.45
