Really, it's very easy.  I would be satisfied if both of the following
were done:

Every time you find a bug in an Ubuntu package, make some effort to
determine if it is Ubuntu-specific or might rather affect all Debian
users.  If it is not Ubuntu-specific, then file a bug report, and
optionally, a patch, in the Debian BTS.

Every Ubuntu package should have a different Maintainer unless the
Debian maintainer has agreed to be the Maintainer of the Ubuntu
package as well.  The Ubuntu package should, of course, continue to
give credit to the upstream Debian maintainer, but not by designating
that individual as the Maintainer in the Ubuntu package.
