I worked with Raphael Hertzog (buxy) on a mail to d-d-a about UVF last
week, which resulted in the flamewar you might have heard of. d-d-a is
definitely not an option.
There is currently the same discussion on the
utnubu-discuss at . See

The plan would be to create an utnubu-announce mailing list for debian
developers interested in being informed of Ubuntu development.
Announcements could be sent there will a followup-to either
utnubu-discuss@ or debian-devel at .
