It's probably a reflection of how many emails to debian lists
are deleted unread for discussing Ubuntu. Maybe it's because
much Ubuntu stuff gets posted to inappropriate mailing lists
(for example, using -devel for non-technical questions like
posting ubuntu PR to -devel-announce).

That seems backwards. If they're not maintaining the ubuntu package,
please don't fib and say that they are. Opt-in, not opt-out.
