Sigh. I guess by that logic, OpenSUSE (sorry, Novell -- I forgot about the obsession with the controlling companies) are responsible for everything built with their build service, so they're definitely out. And Red Hat definitely control people.fedoraproject.org, so they're out as well.
As for the rest of the comment, it seems to be your standard 'someone said something about Ubuntu, let's slam them on ten thousand semi-related points and see how often I can use the word Canonical and bring up their financial backing of Ubuntu' spiel. Getting pretty dull now.
You seem to have extrapolated from 'let's get the main distributors to agree on which versions they'll ship as part of their primary releases' to 'anything put on a private package repository is part of the Ubuntu release and Canonical is responsible and this is why it's going to all fall apart'; at least, that's the most coherent summary I could come up with. Words honestly fail me. If you're actually genuinely confused about this and not just coming up with reasons to slam Ubuntu into the ground once again, you might want to check up on what a release actually comprises of. Hint: it's not random stuff on the web that happens to share the same base domain.
Anyway, by the same logic, Rawhide is not allowed to exist. Have fun selling that one.
