So that if I notice a potential problem, I could contact you and get it solved before the final release?

Like, just an example idea: Have upstream-PACKAGE at mailing list where all notifications about diffs to upstream PACKAGE gets sent. Whoever is interested in them can subscribe there. And send an email about the existence of such list to all of the upstreams' mailing lists. Perhaps the Debian's big openssl mistake would have been noticed immediately if such list had existed for them.. I guess it would be even better to have common lists shared by all distros, but maybe that's too much to ask for.

If you visit and
then click the lp:ubuntu/dovecot branch and then click Subscribe
yourself, you can email notifications when the Ubuntu packaging is
