I've already suggested that the "installation" of an entire distribution 
should be tested prior to an official release. From the run of messages on 
this list, I'd have to conclude that release testing isn't currently done. 
Just a suggestion: Installation testing should include partial installations, 
and upgrade installations (full and/or partial).

I don't believe that folks complain just to complain. We just get fustrated at
the "shortcomings" of a release (or CDROM set) and would like to get them fixed.
