OK, requirements for songbird getting into ubuntu:

 1. build and use system xulrunner 
    -> note it doesn't have to work perfect; as long as it builds and is usable to some degree it should be ok; patches that are initially missing can be sorted later
 2. trademark/license issues: songbird should come up with a general exception that delegates the quality assurance to ubuntu; we have our own QA and that should be enough. Additional reviews of patches are fine, as long as dispute about them doesn't lead to revocation of distribution rights. If we are not 100% confident, we can also start to distribute this using white-labelled marks. However, i'd say songbird developers that care for the quality should rather contribute during development cycle so that the package we distribute is in line with their quality expectations by the end of the cycle. Preferably a songbird dev would join the mozillateam as a liasion. To get this started join #ubuntu-mozillateam on irc.freenode.net permanently.
