Thanks for the explanation Maichal!

So the actual *number* is the same in all cases, and even if someone refers to
bsc#<nr> I can access it as boo#<nr>, yes?
Now that's a valuable lesson :)

Mostly, if the bug originated in SLE and contains customer information
it will likely be marked private and only certain people will be able to
view it, similarly if it is an embargo'd security issue regardless of
whether you go through or only a
small certain group of people with the right privileges will be able to
see it. So the website you access bugzilla by doesn't really matter its
more about the privileges you have.

If you as a openSUSE user find a private bug referenced somewhere that
you think should be public let us know, and if there is no customer info
attached and it was just created as a SLE bug that got set to private we
can probably make it public.

In the medium term it might be worth the openSUSE board looking at this
issue and coming up with a formal request channel for making private
bugs referenced in openSUSE public when requested and possible.
