I've also tried to get it in Ubuntu before, but this is blocked on Joerg
Schilling himself. Quoting from:

# cdrtools

    * Mark gave an update on the cdrtools inclusion situation. Joerg
      Schilling has declined to grant a specific permission on his CDDL
      code, and in the absence of that (or in the absence of a broader
      discussion between CDDL and GPL stakeholders to resolve the
      licence incompatibility), Eben Moglen of SFLC informs us that we
      cannot ship cdrtools. For the time being, the matter is closed.

The latest discussions with Debian have stalled, but they are for ubuntu
because of the above rather irrelevant anyways IMO.
