It is far simpler for me build cdrtools package and have fine result
in several minutes. And especially about wodim there was/is many
bugreports and as I wrote, it was basically unmaintained.

But, I don't only criticise Fedora. When cdrtools is insuitable for
Fedora, then probably may be in rpmfusion repos, and I can maintain
it there. If so, can anyone give me any directions how do it?
