FWIW: Jamie, while reviewing the Debian..Ubuntu packaging log in order to merge the Ubuntu one into the Debian source package, I see a few instances of duplicate packaging work going on (e.g. the fix for this bug, upstart job removal). Such duplicate work could have been avoided by merging from Debian first… which would also have avoided mistakes like keeping the obsolete ubuntu-manpage-updates.patch, and removing the initscript by mistake to re-add it 3 versions later.

Let me know if I can adjust my workflow in a way that makes it easier for you folks to merge from Debian more consistently, I'm open to requests & suggestions :)
