I have forwarded your mail to the debian-tex-main list.  I think we all
are very open for a fruitful collaboration.  But please don't expect an
answer with real content soon - we are currently drowning in
RC+important bug reports for texlive 2007, while at the same time real
life demands its share of time...

I hope this mail is delivered okay to the Ubuntu list.  If not due to
some restrictions/moderation, there's a debian-tex group or something
like this which could be used to make this easier.  I forgot the
details, though.
