The application template for a Contributing Developer (which is Ubuntu
membership approved by MOTU Council) is identical to the template for
per-package uploader, MOTU or core-dev.

There's a number of bug reports in that don't fall into
these categories and have no answer. I'm not apportioning blame, it's
just that you criticised how Ubuntu does not receive enough bug love and
that requires
"effective bug management" of the packages in question.

It just surprised me as you are maintaining these packages in Debian for
so long already. :)

Have a great day,
