If shit happen, then 151 bugs is IMHO a rather serious diarrhea.

My point is "why do we do the work twice". 

In case people didn't notice, there was a thread about "there is too
much update". Some stuff are unavoidable, like security updates. 

Some others could be avoided. And shipping a update is more costly ( it
involve more people and a more complex process ) than shiping a proper
package in the first place.

So the best way to ensure less updates is to find why we do need to
update in the first place. IE, how could have we prevented it.

And if we were not able to detect regression in the first place, how can
we make sure that the update will fix something ?
