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 https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates . If you
need to make an Ubuntu specific upload, see
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SponsorshipProcess . 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 ubuntu-devel-announce@lists.ubuntu.com to
be aware of various Ubuntu freeze and toolchain changes.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
