With the change from traditional /dev/hd* type device nodes to /dev/sd*
type nodes, I see that the highest partition number that can be used is
15. Will this change so that higher numbers will be available? I do
have a system that has a drive with almost 30 small partitions used in a
research effort and the number of partitions has not been an issue thru fc6.

Is rawhide status sort of broken due to kernel, dev stuff (hdx to sdx)
or whatever? Or is that part fixed and even installable or whatever
Hvaen't tried it in a week or longer, and ended up having to reinstall
FC6+updates to get back a usable system.

Shortly before FC6 was released we backed down to an older version of
cdrecord because of conflicts between the GPL and the CDDL licenses.
Debian also at that point forked cdrecord into cdrkit and other
alternatives like libburn exist as well. There seemed at that point to
be a concensus that we should stick to cdrecord for FC6 and talk about
replacing it for FC7 since we were already far long into the FC6 cycle.
Don't change horses in the middle of a stream and all that.
So what is the plan here are we going to stick with an old version of
cdrecord or will we be looking for alternatives?
