You seem to be under a misconception about the purpose of that list.
It has nothing to do with what Postgres releases are packaged by
various distributions.  Entries on the list mean that someone has
verified that the *source code* distribution builds per instructions
and passes regression tests on that platform.

If you are trying to say that you personally have verified that for
Ubuntu, you didn't phrase it clearly.
