Marking them closed, as in fixed, in the form (LP: #XXXXXX) is appreciated.

Yes, on sync, the bugs should be automatically mark as Fix Released when
a fixed version hits the development release.

You can request a sync from Debian with the requestsync tool in
ubuntu-dev-tools which is also found in Debian. Please be aware of the
Quantal release schedule [1] which has Feature freeze as next Thursday,
Aug 23. You can request an update with features in it after this date
if necessary, but it will require a freeze exception (-e flag for

You can subscribe to bugs either through the PTS or on Launchpad
itself. If you fix a launchpad bug as well in your Debian upload, just
close it in the changelog. If you'd like to fix bugs in stable
releases, see . If you
need to make an Ubuntu specific upload, see . From the Ubuntu point of
view, we'd prefer to keep this in sync with Debian if possible, so it
seems like you're already doing everything right here :) Feel free to
join #ubuntu-motu on freenode IRC with any questions or send an E-Mail
to the ubuntu-motu list here.
You might want to subscribe to to
be aware of various Ubuntu freeze and toolchain changes.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
