I would read what you quote even in this way: "Ubuntu is a Debian
derivative not the contrary. Why should we rename source packages if
their name already exists in derivatives? For NEW packages, should we
check in ~140 derivatives? Or should derivatives manage that?". You know
my position.

I don't like discriminating among them eg. I look at DDPOs with
&ubuntu=0. Does anyone know how not to display derivs info on PTS?

Regarding sponsors, I hope they are interested in this package, not in
the packager. Unfortunately, I need a sponsor and I don't intent to
apply to NM process yet. Probably when I feel ready to do it, Debian
will already completely be assimilated by uborg.
