Ok. A few seconds later I found the
http://www.debian.org/CD/jigdo-cd/#search. However, the list at
http://atterer.net/jigdo/jigdo-search.php?list is very large and maybe
that's not very comfortable. So opinions about plain lists (just for the
current stable and oldstable release cd/dvd images)? Or should it be
implemented in the packages.debian.org site, so the site tells, which
CD/DVD contains the package?
