w.r.t. system-image, I agree with this. Because I've been so concentrated on
the upstream project, I have a good workflow for dealing with issues there.
In the past, I've missed bugs that were *only* filed against the Ubuntu
project. Now, I at least try to visit the Ubuntu project and add upstream bug
tasks for relevant issues, so they get tracked in both places.

(Ultimately, it's too bad Launchpad doesn't allow projects to opt into some
kind of automatic promotion of bugs from Ubuntu to upstream.)
