Hi Lucas,

As a MOTU hopeful and Debian Developer, i'm glad you're interested on
this subject too. I think your proposal would work with minor
enhancements. I'll split my comments in two sections, Ubuntu
Developers and MOTUs:

- I believe that a MOTUDct, mainly with Debian Developers involved and
interested in organize Ubuntu universe and contribute back to Debian
the changes, would work. It isn't only about merge packages but report
bugs too. I think it's just a matter of receive a ok from CC or just
ogra and dholbach (?!), document it on the wiki and ask for volunteers
in utnubu.

* Ubuntu Developers
- It seems to be the core of the problems coming from that
debian-devel threads. It would be better to hear the feedback from
Canonical on this first, but i'll take the risk and suggest that they
hire a person to work with MOTUDct, doing the same thing but just for
main related issues. It's clear that a volunteer (or more) in MOTUDct
could do the same, but it's all about "we're contributing back to
Debian" thing.
