There is a set of packages that are unique to debian and unique to ubuntu.
Toolchain is slightly different, w.r.t. to security and hardening

There are packagesets that are ahead or behind debian.
Overall scanning ubuntu main should be small amount of packages and
capture majority of above distro differentiating divergences.
