Work items:
[mdz] Propose concentrating on big merges, sorted by size/delta, see "Big merges" http://lists.debian.org/debian-derivatives/2011/03/msg00024.html Generate a list of these opportunities sorted by horribleness. e.g. initramfs.: TODO
[jorge] Try to find someone to design the dex page so it looks nice.: DONE
[laney] measure relative uploads between ubuntu and debian and see if anything interesting pops up (UDD data imported, just got to write query/interface): INPROGRESS
[vorlon] document RFA bugs as the recommended procedure for finding Debian maintainers for new packages introduced in Ubuntu first: TODO
[jorge] talks to LP to see if we can improve/replace patches.ubuntu.com, can LP help us here?, can't lose PTS integration (Bryce has https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/oneiric/+localpackagediffs needs some work but good progress so far, needs API, etc.): DONE
