Is there a single place where all official Custom Debian Distributions
(CDDs - even a reasonable TLA), aka internal projects, are listed?

Should have a cdd@lists.d.o list then...

Actually, it feels to me like we've come to a rough concensus on Custom
Debian Distribution. There is agreement a single term is a good thing,
perhaps with sub-definitions. No one (unless I missed it) has proposed a
better name that hasn't had problems pointed out. I think.

It comes down to people using it. How would one go about creating a
common location for pointers to all of these CDDs?

Then, it's up to the projects to start using the term. A list would I
think be very good for making cdd discussions stand out at this point -
there seems to be enough traffic. But perhaps I'm wrong, I don't know.
