	Agreed. Use the .org domain and maybe add a pointer saying:

"If you are looking for the debconf program look for it here:

	That way there is no doubt this is about the conference, I'm
positive the debconf maintainers don't want to setup a .org domain, as a
matter of fact there is no dpkg.org domain.
	In any case, I wonder if 'debconf.debian.org' is better for this
purpose... web pages could be handled by the WWW CVS, after all we already
have http://www.debian.org/events/. I'm sorry if this sounds like
centralization, but I prefer to have things in places I know backups are
often done and machines we have control over :)
