that depends on the version you are running. I recently ran into the apt.conf.d directory stuff on newer debian systems, apparently they are trying to fragment the config out into many seperate files instead of having it in one file (my guess is they think there will be a library of options to just copy into the directory)

/etc/apt/apt.conf.d allows packages to supply apt configuration data without messy editing of config files. It's a common pattern in Debian.

In general, administrators should (continue to) use /etc/apt/apt.conf to provide their own settings. You should only edit 70debconf if you need to change the settings which are provided by debconf.
