What about idea to take concerted effort on one category.
For instance:
https://bugzilla.novell.com/buglist.cgi?query_format=advanced&short_desc_type=fulltext&short_desc=&long_desc_type=fulltext&long_desc=&bug_file_loc_type=allwordssubstr&bug_file_loc=&status_whiteboard_type=allwordssubstr&status_whiteboard=&keywords_type=anywords&keywords=&bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=NEEDINFO&bug_status=REOPENED&bug_severity=Critical&rep_platform=PC&rep_platform=i386&rep_platform=i586&rep_platform=i686&rep_platform=x86-64&rep_platform=x86&rep_platform=64bit&rep_platform=32bit&op_sys=All&op_sys=OES+-+Linux&op_sys=SuSE+Linux+10.0&op_sys=SuSE+Linux+10.1&op_sys=SuSE+Other&op_sys=Linux&op_sys=UNIX+Other&op_sys=Other&emailassigned_to1=1&emailtype1=substring&email1=&emailassigned_to2=1&emailreporter2=1&emailqa_contact2=1&emailcc2=1&emailtype2=substring&email2=&bugidtype=include&bug_id=&votes=&chfieldfrom=&chfieldto=Now&chfieldvalue=&cmdtype=doit&order=Reuse+same+sort+as+last+time&field0-0-0=noop&type0-0-0=noop&value0-0-0=
has 57 bugs, select few that can be tested by this community, put on the list
in a new thread and call for help. Notify bug owners to monitor and jump in
communication here at the time you announce hunting season.

Concentrated effort to bring more people togeather on the same task may help
to collect more data and resolve bugs faster. More people on the same task
mean also more eyes looking in the Internet for more traces of the same
symptoms.

I guess that many of us never experience some bugs for many reasons, and have
no idea that they exists until it happens. Than we go to bugzilla and if we
have luck to select right search criteria, bug will show up and we can add
our comment, if not we will file duplicate.
