Q: I have written a patch for Ubuntu, how can I forward it to Debian too?
A: Take a look at these two pages:
- _Make sure that it really applies to Debian too: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuPackagingChanges has a list of changes that are deliberately different in Ubuntu. _
- _Check out https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/ReportingToDebian and find out how to use submittodebian (in the ubuntu-dev-tools package) to forward it to debbugs. _
Q: What do Ubuntu developers look like?

Q: I know that ‘gutsy’ is already released and you’re working on hardy, but I really need to get a change into ‘gutsy’.
A: The process for this is called Stable Release Updates (short SRU) and involves rigorous testing.
