Do they care for Ubuntu games as their wiki pages make no mention  of
Ubuntu whatsoever.

Some confusion maybe seen from the naming, but I see no real issue. The
team members who wish too can look at and work with more specific Ubuntu
issues and act as a conduit between the teams of both distributions to
make things better. Many teams work in this way and I see no real
competition or massive problems and a hopeful flow of information would
only be productive.
