[red bold text highlighted by me]golden45 wrote:Found this concerning packaging management system.
Ubuntu uses the same packaging management system (deb and apt) and with each development cycle pulls in the latest packages from Debian and then adapts them to Ubuntu specifics and adds more features and patches where necessary. They also push changes back to Debian and often developers are Ubuntu and Debian developers.
It looks to me that packages are worked on by both ubuntu and debian by developers of the systems.thanks john

It's like if you have the same person wrapping gifts who always wraps presents in shiny red paper and a gold ribbon, and uses the same sized box and folds the wrapping paper in exactly the same way every time, but the contents in the box that he wraps may be different depending who the recipient is.
So both Debian and Ubuntu use the same packaging format, but the stuff that is packed in a .deb file format can be different.
