Crazy was to  CrazyTerabyte   not to you. we update packages as fast as possible. Im not saying we are flawless but we as in ubuntu are always looking for more people to help out with packaging and fixing bugs or just helping in forums or on iRC but we cant get everything fixed "right a way".  If flash would change thier license it would be alot easier and alot faster for us to get updates to users, but we cant change anything in flash code so we reley on them to release it. Just before release a few of us tested flash 9.0.48 and it had alot of regressions it was crashing all the time it had a horizontal streak in it and a bunch of other issues. When we were sure breakage was to a minimum we released the new version to feisty-proposed for testing, at that point i needed 2 people to confrim it worked ok, than i had to set tags ping core-devs for them to push it to feisty-updates but since flash was never free it was never in main to begin with its always been in multiverse. The reason for all this just to get a package into feisty is due to stable release updates rules https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MOTU/SRU
this is to prevent packages to being upgraded to a stable system that are not stable themselves and cause your stable system to crash. We do our best to prevent this.
