I can't say for sure, since I'm not an Ubuntu contributor, but from what
I've read on their website, it doesn't look particularly difficult.  Their
BTS and communications are open, and they have a documented process for
getting upload access, so the basics are there.  There appears to be several
volunteer contributors already, so I think things are running along there.

I guess whether "it's as easy as Debian" is subjective -- some people will
probably find it easier to contribute, and others more difficult, because of
the differing styles of the two projects.  Those who have a religious
objection to our e-mail based BTS, for instance, might find Ubuntu's
bugzilla more appealing.  <grin>
