default cd burning package

Description of problem:Manual rhl-gsg(EN)-9-HTML-RHI (2003-02-20T01:05) does not
contain infpormation re Gnome Toaster 1.0 Beta 6, the CD burner supplied.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Tammy, i hope you are the correct person for this problem ;-)
Since there are multiple applications that perform similar tasks and we only
have so many pages that can be included in the manuals, our priority is to
document the default applications -- the ones that are installed by default.
Since gtoaster is an "Extra" package under More System Tools, documenting it is
not a priority. The RHL 9 GSG already covers the burn: interface in Nautilus,
X-CD-Roast, and cdrecord.
I found the problem: As an ignorant beginner, I loaded the default package for
a workstation. The manual tells how to use X-CD-Roast, but the default package
doesn't include X-CD-Roast; it has Gnome Toaster 1.0 Beta 6.
I respectfully suggest that it would be better to include the tool that is
explained in the manual.

Requesting that a default package be changed should be filed against the
distribution component. I also changed the summary to better reflect your request.
Having Gnome Toaster installed by default but also as an Extra package is odd.
If only one GUI interface to burn CDs is installed by default and it is the only
GUI interface to burn CDs installed by default, it should not be in Extras. That
begin said, I don't think Gnome Toaster should be the default.
Currently, we default to nautilus-cd-burner. I suspect that this would
be the only thing documented.
Closing bug on older, no longer maintained release, in any case.
