Apparently I allocate more of my time trying to prevent the waste of developer
and QA time than do some other active bug reporters. In fact, some of the
time I
spend _is_ on BZ QA itself, what I can, not being a programmer, and not able
decipher crash logs. When I find what I think is could be an upstream bug, I
take the time to try to reproduce in at least one other distro, and report
upstream instead or in addition. And, I only test on hardware, ensuring that
observed behavior is not created by VM software. One of my often used BZ saved
searches is reports created in past two days. What each participant does isn't
equally visible.

I'm not going to bother entering into any of the debate here but as the
main team Ana contributes too does pretty much everything on github
looking through the openSUSE and obs projects bug trackers will probably
give you much more accurate results.
