Relation to Debian Desktop Distribution (DDD)

Hi there,

I wondered what the relation of Ubuntotowards the Debian Desktop Distribution 
is. I've seen the UserLinux Project specifically mentioned on but wondered more why this (ubuntu) is not simply part of 
Debian Desktop as most of the goals (faster releases than standard debian, 
only supporting the main Desktop architectures) seem similar.

Especially the fact that there are seemingly mostly Debian developers involved 
in Ubunto made me wonder why this here isn't DDD.

Is there work shared between the two projects or are they really unrelated?
