I have been looking into switching to Debian, and so I did some, albeit minimal, research regarding packages from Ubuntu 
community repos working on Debian.

As I understand it, an upstream (Debian) package *should* work on a downstream (Ubuntu, Mint, etc.) system, but not necessarily 
vice versa. The package dependencies would be the deciding issue.

My knowledge on this is quite limited, so weigh it accordingly.
