There is no difference: use the same content as you would on a Debian
system, save referencing the Ubuntu releases.

As a non-core comment though, don't do that.  You /really/ don't want to
try and run a system that is a mix of two releases.  In short order you
will wind up in a stick mess that just doesn't work correctly.

If you really can't live without the newer versions of some software you
are vastly better off compiling the newer release on the older version
