That is never going to happen.

It sure seems like in general it /has/ happened. We haven't really had any
serious issues
with not being able to install on most hardware. ISTR one release that had
that happen
(11.3, maybe?).

I mean bugs with packages, most are found later.

The real testing phase is the first month after the release, and that is a
fact. A
release becomes usable after two months of release, when the devs have cured
problems discovered in the first month.

And those updates are tested a lot, too.

They're not tested on install media, which is kinda my point.

I know, but I prefer to guess that issues would be few and worth a try. Maybe
one sub-release
at midterm.
