Sorry for the delay, I was off.

I think launchpad is right. I was uploading the packages I am in charge
in Debian in the Debian archive first and then into Ubuntu (merging
Ubuntu specific changes if needed). 
I stopped doing that after a few rejects on packages uploads (per
package upload right were not up to date).
I was doing that to make sure the right version of packages were
available in Ubuntu.

If you are looking for evaluating my involvement in Ubuntu, if launchpad
allows that, you could have a look on my involvement in bug triage in
the package I maintain.
