Description Erik Zeek 2020-04-20 12:47:59 UTC
As mentioned in the file[1], python-discid or python-libdiscid are, "Required for CD lookups." Python-discid is currently available.

Picard functions without the dependency (except for the CD lookup feature), so the dependency should probably be optional.
