Well said.
For the record, I disagree with some of Johns sentiment. and feel it is
not consistant with the official opinion of SUSE.

It's Adrian, not John ;).

And I'm not sure where I'm wrong, the numbers speak for itself:

I know it's very controversial to say that among the community but in
the end, it's pretty much what the numbers say.

The community is the only entity that controls what is inside Leap,
with the obvious caveat that SUSE is part of that community also.

The community doesn't have the manpower to work on projects like the
kernel, gcc or anything of similar size. In the end, there is always
a corporate entity which is funding the work.

Even a large number of Debian developers are paid by a company, in
many cases Canonical. And Debian is legally a completely independent
project, yet there are companies behind it driving the development.

Free software doesn't mean developers work free of charge.
