The next steps are a proper bug tracker and start patching.  It has
been a little frustrating because all of the bugs on this thread have
been part of the lower packages.  As part of my learning I have been
starting with the easiest packages first, the activities.  From there
I hope to move to the more complicated core sugar packages and finally
start on xulrunner an csound.

The basic strategy is to move towards Debian's upstream packages.  The
goal is to allow Ubuntu and Debian to share patches and feedback
without step on each others toes with regard to packaging methods.
Debian has added several interesting features to automate the
packaging process.  But, these features make it harder for new
packagers to get started.

The xpcom provided by the Ubuntu xulrunner does not seem to work correctly.
