cdda2wav package missing from WS and AS channels

Description of problem:
The 'cdda2wav' package is missing from the RHEL3 WS and AS channels.
This is odd since the mkisofs, cdrecord, and cdrecord-devel packages
are present. All four of these packages come from the same source RPM
(cdrtools), and cdda2wav is built if the cdrtools-2.01.0.a32-0.EL3.1
source package is rebuilt.
At least one package (xcdroast) requires the cdda2wav package, and it
cannot be installed due to a failed dependency on cdda2wav.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL3
2. Register system with RHN.
3. Try to install 'cdda2wav'. This will fail.
4. Try to install any of: cdrecord, cdrecord-devel, or mkisofs.
This will succeed.
Actual Results: 1) The cdda2wav package is not installed.
Expected Results: cdda2wav package should be installed. This is true
both when installing directly ("up2date -i cdda2wav") and indirectly
as a dependency ("up2date -i xcdroast").
Output from running 'up2date':
[root@lisboa root]# up2date -i cdda2wav

The following packages you requested were not found:
xcdroast and cdda2wav are not in RHEL 3
Created attachment 108286 [details]
Rebuild of cdrtools-2.01.0.a32-0.EL33.1.src.rpm package creates cdda2wav-2.01.0.a32-0.EL3.1.i386.rpm file
This is the output (edited for brevity) from rebuilding the
cdrtools-2.01.0.a32-0.EL33.1.src.rpm package. It creates a binary cdda2wav rpm
file, as well as binary packages for mkisofs, cdrecord, and cdrecord-devel.
If they aren't in RHEL3, then why are mkisofs, cdrecord, and
cdrecord-devel included? Alternately, why does cdrtools include
cdda2wav? These four packages all come from the cdrtools source
package. Please see the attached file for a demonstration.
If cdda2wav is to be excluded, then I would expect it to be broken
into a seperate src.rpm file, instead of quietly being included in the
cdrtools source package.
I agree that xcdroast is not part of RHEL3, it merely was used in as
an example of a package that has cdda2wav as a dependency.
NEEDINFO_PM has been deprecated. Changing status to NEEDINFO and changing
