I often find it amazing how upstream don't seems to have a clue of what
releasing a distribution is all about (i.e integration of components,
testing, documentation, long term support, easy security update during
that period, easy installation...). Organisations and end-users just
want to install an application and then use it (i.e not spending their
time upgrading it, adjusting the configuration, migrating data...).

And we can't really blame them, most of these stuffs aren't their job
