You misunderstood me. This is the general policy with each release.
A perfect bugfree distribution will be ideal.
There are two periods:
* Before the goldmaster you fix all the bugs with priority on the
critical ones and try to not break stuff. The earlier you report ,
the better is the chance to get it fixed.
* after the goldmaster you fix only a few bugs via online update. The
majority of the fixes will go into the next release...

10.3 will introduce its own share of new bugs - and new enhancements
and fixes.

I consider 10.2 a great distribution. My message was to tell people
that we
a) do fix some of the existing bugs via online update
b) will not fix all bugs

Hope this clarifies it,
- aka someone at SUSE ;-)
