In a nutshell:
In a CLI (command line interface), type:
host -t txt ask.debian.net
It will anwser:
ask.debian.net descriptive text "Stefano Zacchiroli <email@example.com>"
ask.debian.net descriptive text "PGP 4900 707D DC5C 07F2 DECB 0283 9C31 503C 6D86 6396"
This will work for most entries in *.debian.net.
As for "debian.net" itself, it is owned by the Debian project through the
SPI non-profit. It is an official Debian project service used by DDs to
provide *unofficial* Debian services (such as ask.debian.net, and many
others, refer to the wiki page above).
As a rule, the person pointed to by a <something>.debian.net TXT record is
the one ultimately responsible for that particular debian.net service.
