I envisaged "Working with Debian" to be about how to use reportbug, how
to send good patches and how to make Ubuntu changes sensitively, and
"Working in Debian" to talk about the how and why of maintaining your
stuff directly in Debian. You could call it "How to be a good derivative
[developer]", to be more generic. Personally I think it would be
interesting to have someone non-Ubuntu give this or another session, to
supply a slightly different perspective on things. :-)
