I did not notice that. Sorry.

There are bugs in BTS where udev is suspected to assign media to floppy
group (645466, 648810), but it is not the case here:
ls -l /dev/sr*
brw-rw---T+ 1 root cdrom 11, 0 déc.  24 11:51 /dev/sr0
brw-rw---T+ 1 root cdrom 11, 1 déc.  24 14:07 /dev/sr1

Moreover, udev detects the drive as a cd writer since it recreates the
70-persistent-cd.rules after I delete it.

I am ok to file a bug against udev package but should not this one be
re-assigned to udev instead ?

Thanks and merry Christmas too.
