The idea is that people want to use the BTS to report bugs in Official CDs.
So a "virtual BTS package" was created for this purpose a few days ago. The
"virtual BTS package name" can be anything you like. "cd-images" was chosen
initially by a BTS manager, but I think "cdimage.debian.org" is better since
besides the images themselves it would also cover the webpages, mirror lists,
download utilities, etc. And it would match the current standard, for we
already have "ftp.debian.org" and "www.debian.org" (and cdimage.d.o bears some
resemblance to both).
