 Sorry to not have followed that list, a reference would had been useful
in the log. :)

And it's still highly confusing. The 10 in debconf10 can be considered
to refer to the year it's held in - and in that light it's quite easy to
understand for everyone, there are other conferences that have exactly
the same approach: Have the year attached to the conference name but
count for real (and don't hide ones that happened before the year
matched the conference number). It's not so much of a geek thing. People
refer to it as debconf10 anyway.

 But given that there was discussion happening (which wasn't clear to me
from the commit message), even though I can't properly follow the
argument for above mentioned reasoning, it's not my call ...

 Well, if it's so much of a pressing issue anyone could change it back
and I now have a reason attached to it so I'm fine.

 Strange things happen, hiding conferences that happened.
