PG is just as good at the volunteers make it. If the person that first uploads the work is sloppy (or can't do better with the tools she has) and no one informs them of the possible errors there may be... well, they're never fixed. Even if someone sends a list of errors, they need some volunteer to check them (ideally against the same printed edition that was used originally, which may be unknown or unavailable) and to fix them in all versions.
