Sometimes I think Ubuntu should use Fedora as its upstream.
In large part they do, just not directly. As well as Ubuntu benefiting from the extensive testing that new software gets in Fedora considerably before it makes it into Ubuntu, Fedora's 'upstream first' approach means that a lot of Fedora and Red Hat work is done directly in upstream projects, from whence it flows into Ubuntu, either directly or via Debian.
It's safe to say that Ubuntu wouldn't be where it is without Fedora's contributions.
