What is the point you are trying to make? The FreeBSD ports collection
has about 22000 ports and not a single Novell employee is paid to work
on them (nor employees)...

I mentioned this thread subject multiple times in filed more than 4
months ago which has all but totally been ignored.

...and the misc/mc port there is at version 4.7.2.

openSUSE, like any other Open Source projects, needs contributions,
community, volunteers.

This resource lack is exacerbated by the artificial Novell distinction
and double work between "bugs" and "features", with separate databases
for both.

Looks like a red herring to me.
