Or “as they pretend to” [1]:
| When a bug is reported in the Debian bug tracking system and then later
| fixed in Ubuntu, the fixes are often automatically communicated back
| directly to the debian bug system. Patches are also published
| automatically on patches.ubuntu.com. The long term goal of that work is
| to ensure that patches made by the full-time Ubuntu team members are
| immediately also included in debian packages where the debian maintainer
| likes the work.

That might be the point of various people out here, not necessarily
mine. (It might be that Ubuntu doesn't fix that many bugs, too.)
