It means that if it presents reportbug will CC the submitter, else it won't.

that's the 'yes' the problem, not 'cc'.

No, it's still preset

$ grep 'cc' reportbug/utils.py | tail -n2
                elif token in ('no-cc', 'cc'):
                    args['nocc'] = (token == 'no-cc')

and used by default in reportbug:

$ grep 'cc' conf/reportbug.conf

Anyhow, I'll clarify in the manpage what it means.
