Does Ubuntu have any quality control?

Finally made phppgadmin work with the help of LQ and a lot of other sites. Wanted to use phpmyadmin for remote management of psql databases. What a challenge. I think I changed every spec in as many files. Went through every log known to man (or at least most admins). had to make the port specs agree. Made sure the port was open with nmap. The real kicker was I had to go into a couple of php files and update the code because some of the code was deprecated. I made sure and use pdfit (a firefox plug in) to save all the pages in pdf format for future reference. I do not want to look up all that stuff again. Definitely do not see a novice user doing all that or have to do that. What amazes me that phppgadmin is a major web app. Did not ubuntu check it out to make sure it worked? Enough about that.

    Sometimes you have to choose an older version of one thing to make it work with what's installed. Also, if you have 50+ people all submitting packages at different times, one person's package may be based on and old version of another person's. But really, if that's the case, all you can do is submit bug reports.

    You are definitely right. I can understand why Linus was so picky about who or what became part of linux. But if you can not even just log into a program at the very beginning, to me that sends out issues. Obviously even minimal testing was not done. If it were a hidden bug, I might be more flexible in my opinion. You can not catch everything.
