Will the Debconf proceedings be part of Debian? If so, I think,
irrespective of licencing issues, that that will be a waste of mirror
space (and Packages.gz bandwidth).

That, for the record, goes for all packages that just provide
user-level content, where the data are not behind-the-scenes
requirements for making actual software run correctly. Just put
the stuff on a bloody website!
