The dvd+rw-tools suite makes it possible to burn DVD images created by
dvdauthor or genisoimage to DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-R, and DVD-RW disks,
replacing cdrecord-proDVD in many cases.
This package contains dvd+rw-mediainfo (to give details about DVD
disks), and some programs to control the write speed and obtain
information from DVD-RAM.
Additionally, it depends on the growisofs package to provide the main
front-end for burning DVD-like media.
