In the Ubuntu wiki, there's
<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuForDebianDevelopers> which is "intended to
provide practical information about Ubuntu specifically for Debian
developers." I've just added a new section, "How can I indicate that a bug
filed in Ubuntu against one of my packages is fixed in Debian?" explaining
the changelog handling.
On the Debian side, I would suggest that an explanation be linked from
anywhere that the Ubuntu bugs themselves are displayed (e.g., in the PTS).
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
