I was mainly referring to initial package development and Debianesque
changes.  This means that most of the work is done by Debian developers,
leaving less work for the Ubuntu side of things.  I'm not sure about the
relationship/ratio of Debian:Ubuntu developers.  If this is the case, it
means that the developers not only have to work on Debian packages, but
Ubuntu packages as well, giving them less time on their hands due to the
separate release cycles.  I could be wrong...
