We would like it if somebody would do Ubuntu packaging, testing and
documenting. At the moment only Debian is really good supported.

In my opinion packages should come in Debian, and flow to Ubuntu. 70% of
the packages in Ubuntu are copies from Debian, so Ubuntu will stay
compatible with Debian.

But if it's the other way arround: not automatically. Debian is not
compatible with Ubuntu.

I expect Heinz and Alex prefer working on the Debian commandline ;-)
