    Phoronix: Ubuntu's Server Installer Was Mistakenly Leaking Encrypted Storage Passphrase To Its Log

    With the recently released Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, the Ubuntu Server installer exclusively uses the "Subiquity" installer that Canonical has been working on in recent years in moving away from the classic Debian Installer.

              Bugs happen, it's inevitable... what I meant to say was that deadlines on software releases cause preventable bugs to slip through. It lowers the quality of the code because 'we need it to be finished today'. That's how and slip ups like this happen.

              I've seen it happen too many times: Timed releases cause an increase in bug fix updates afterwards.

                    It still does. But since it is intentionally there's no but to fix
