Is it? From my understanding, they take regular snapshots from sid, make
them releasable and that's it. (Not that this isn't hard work.) And I
don't think they have the manpower to do everything Debian does (even
for their limited number of packages and architectures) so they have to
rely on Debian's work.

But you're probably better off asking this question on an Ubuntu list.
(And no, I don't have anything against people asking Ubuntu related
questions on this list, but this one is quite specific.)
