Au contraire mon ami. SUSE already does *way* too much for openSUSE.
In what sense? Financially? In terms of developer resources? Can you provide any reasoning for this strong statement? So far I thought that openSUSE, in particular Factory, is a valuable asset for SUSE in various ways.
If this is supposed to be a healthy FOSS project, openSUSE needs to be able to attract contributors. If we can't, SUSE can't fix this either.
You don't attract contributors by calling out for them. You attract them by creating an interesting project, where contributing is fun and rewarding for people with a variety of skills, actually more fun and more rewarding than contributing to other projects. This doesn't happen out of the blue. If SUSE wants the project to thrive, it has to invest in it.
