It definitely is!

I'll try to anser this question with some rough numbers & rates. Once 10.1
is out, we will hopefully have the time to dig into bugzilla and come up
with some real numbers.

IIRC we had some 1/3 communtiy to 2/3 Novell / SUSE repored bugs for
10.0. This has changed for 10.1, where we approximately have the same
numbers in reverse.

The 1/3 of community reported bugs was distributed into 1/3 "new" and 2/3
"old", if I rember correctly -- but I'd have to go and check those numbers

It's not that easy to gather those numbers from bugzilla -- what I did
some month ago was downloading csv formated exports from bugzilla queries
with a lot of different collums turned on and then parsing those with a
spcial script.
