Even though I personally won't be, I guess there will be people against
about adding something Ubuntu-specific to the Debian Developer's
Reference, but I will be happy to be proven wrong. Still, this is the
reason while I looked first for a wiki page on wiki.d.o, not founding

Still, I've just recalled the Ubuntu "Debian Collaboration Team"
initiative, which has a wiki page http://wiki.ubuntu.com/DCT, apparently
dormant at still at a planning stage. Cc-ing the corresponding mailing
list, with the proposal of creating a page on wiki.d.o to collect
information about how to interact with Ubuntu tools such as Launchpad.
Creating it just to add the Vorlon bit would be pointless, but maybe the
DCT team has accumulated other info which would be worth storing there
