That reminds me of part of the conversation in the room:

we want help from the distribution packagers. Both Jolla and Canonical people 
were in the room and reported they have quite a few patches applied to old 
releases, most of them backports from later versions. We'd like packagers to 
help us with patches that they need applied and also with testing.

As for sync'ing up with distros, we will probably have a problem because no 
schedule will line up. And, in any case, with a support plan of 18-24 months, 
it's way too short for Debian.
