we are interested in working closely with the Ubuntu project, otherwise I
would not be here providing a detailed description of the project and
clarifying how it does not duplicate the existing official projects. (I
already knew this position from a few members on #ubuntu-motu).

Official repositories are an important part of the project, I will have all
the pleasure in engaging into collaboration activities, preferably
automated, as long we pass the "Why do you exist?" phase. That is the dialog
that has been running with Scott, nothing else.

Once we skip that phase of the dialog, we will get into the, "How can we
collaborate?", which I was trying to get into on my previous mail, regarding
the ability to upload packages to a backports automated building process.
