Well, realize that some of the trouble you had with that BugResponse is
because you applied it inappropriately: the summary says "If it's a
packaging request of new software not already in Debian". If it's a sync
request from Debian, then the above clearly doesn't apply.

However, I understand that it's easy to misread "Debian" as "Ubuntu" if
you're not looking too closely. Perhaps that should be stressed a bit on
that page.
