Ok, now can you explain this inconsitency, you say in another mail that most
ubuntu packages are maintained by the debian maintainers.

Does this mean that those 'most' packages are maintained by the debian
maintainers, who do uploads to ubuntu also ? How many is most in this case ?
Do they also know about it ? I mean i was never proposed to make ubuntu
maintenance of my packages for example, so i wonder how this works.
