Parent article: Ubuntu debuts its Upstream Report
If Ubuntu contributed nothing to the kernel but contributed big-time to Gnome and freedesktop.org projects, that would still be a huge service. While it wouldn't help those who are only interested in Linux as a server or embedded OS, it would still be a big contribution.
However, upstream shouldn't be asked to deal with Lauchpad; Ubuntu contributors to upstream should deal with making sure that bug reports are handled properly in upstream projects' bug-tracking systems (likewise for other distros).
