I guess you mean udftools...

You mean the documentation file is pointed at there?

Well, apparently it ain't as easy because people do not necessarily see
it how you see it. That's why I'm asking.

I have removed ancient stuff in the past myself and it is not always
easy to go dig out who uses it and whether it is used at all in the
first place.

And people do not always reply and projects are dead and they maybe use
it but the machine which has this hw hasn't been booted for a decade and
it ain't worth the enegry to power it back on and so so on and so on...

So you don't have to get all worked up about it - if it is really used,
I'm sure the maintainers involved will do the right decision. The point
is, finding out whether something still has users and with the latest
kernel is not always trivial.
