    But they don't. They delay the release because of bugs, which means that a feature is not working as it should, it is not ready.

    No. If a feature is not ready at all, it will be dropped usually. If you look at the blocker bugs, they are almost entirely just bugs in the installer from changes in the underlying system that needs to be fixed. Anything that can be fixed post-release as updates will usually not be considered blocker bugs at all.

    It doesn't mean anything of the sort. A feature being "not ready" means it's either functionally incomplete, or has so many obvious bugs as to be clear that it's not usable, and if that's the case, the feature just doesn't make it into that release. Bugs that delay releases are the ones found once the release starts getting more thorough testing - and often, aren't new features at all, but old ones that have broken as a result of having dependencies upgraded...
