Count me too. Not as the default browser, but I want it installed anyway.

Maybe a stupid question: Is there a resource or link explaining the
rationale behind maintaining separate archives instead of just tapping into
Debian's? I guess some packages may need Ubuntuification, and some others
not in Debian may be needed separately (for which a small separate archive
would suffice), but a huge number of them could just as well be used from
Debian repositories and we wouldn't suffer from heavy Gnomeification and
wasted man hours to maintain a clone repository. What am I missing here?
