by definition an ubuntu flavour is built from the ubuntu archive,
produced by packages the ubuntu developer community maintains, using the
ubuntu image build infrastructure and no third party packages ... 

mint does not maintain its package changes, patches and modifications in
the ubuntu archive, uses their own overlay repo when building images,
uses their own image build infrastructure and holds back updates all
other flavours receive by design ...

while you can call it "based on" or "fork" it is surely not a
flavour ... their unintentional out-of-archive modifications caused and
still cause a lot of extra work for bug triagers and developers ...
