There's no need to sync this, the packages in Ubuntu and Debian are (mostly) the same. Or am I missing something?

Almost the same. If we sync (fakesync in this state) packages, then new Debian's revisions will come automatically.

Yes, but this can be done once there is something meaningful to sync. No need to give MOTU, archive admins and the build servers work for nothing.

Nothing? MOTU work is to do as small as possible different between Ubuntu and Debian. Meaningful will come automatically after sync. This is not package 1GB size and it won't take much server resources. However, you are a MOTU and your work is sponsor requests like this one.

No, MOTU's work is to make Ubuntu rock even more. That requires lots of time investment. Reducing the difference between Ubuntu and Debian packages makes it easier to take over changes done by Debian developers, leaving more time for Ubuntu developers to work on other stuff than replicating the same difference over and over again.

However, while it certainly is a best-practice, reducing the diff isn't by itself justify an upload.

I agree that this sync isn't a big problem, and I won't care at all if someone else approves it, but still, it is pointless. The sync can still be requested once Debian has some useful change (like a bug fix or a new upstream version). Especially in this case, since I'm the Debian Maintainer for the package and I fill sync requests for Ubuntu when that's needed, so there is no risk that this package will be forgotten and remain outdated in Ubuntu.

Anyway, thank you for your work on making Ubuntu better and for caring for Mistelix!
