	You should really learn to use the Debian website a bit more. There is 
a link in the bottom right hand side of 
http://packages.qa.debian.org/m/mysql-workbench.html that would take you 
to   the Ubuntu information. Which shows that currently Ubuntu is taking 
directly from Debian with no alteration.
