Ubuntu Stable Release Updates[1] (SRU) are a notoriously complex process that involves many steps. If something is just not right, the update can be delayed or even rejected.

This talk will show the reasoning behind all these requirements, what are the most common issues that delay or reject an update, and what a mythical Perfect SRU would look like.
