This change-request is due to the word list in the fdp primer book.
According to it, the FreeBSD Documentation Project should write
CDROM instead of CD-ROM. I remember your pr, as well as some others
trying to substitute CDROM with CD-ROM. I have followed up prs to
use the same rule but at this point it is hard to change everything
to an specific way to spell it (even more if we are talking about
changing everything to CD-ROM), that is why I requested this change.
It is hard to really tell how it should be written right now, I'm
just trying to follow the rule stated. Thanks for the comment, I
think it would be a great idea to define how this should be done.
