Great, I have no doubts about contributions so far and about your technical 
skills since you're a DD. I guess I'll ask you a few question when I'm unsure 
myself though :P

Reading on, that gnome-2.20 has just entered unstable, I'm 
curious to hear what you think the differences between debian and ubuntu are 
in this regard (noting, that I'm a KDE user, and don't know anything about 
what changes or whatever the 2.20 stands for).

Also what do you think about the interaction between debian and ubuntu? What 
could be improved/what works well so far? What are you doing/could you do to 
improve the current situation?
