The number of us exclusively working on openSUSE actually is not that
high. ;-)

Overall, Novell provides a very significant contribution to openSUSE, but
it is more along the lines of one or two dozen people doing so full-time
(rough guestimate) and a few hundred spending anywhere between five and
95% of their time on openSUSE, the average being somewhere in the middle.

Ah! Suggestion: @opensuse/core/<nickname> ?

The FreeBSD Core Team constitutes the project's "Board of Directors",
responsible for deciding the project's overall goals and direction as
well as managing specific areas of the FreeBSD project landscape. The
Core Team is elected by the active developers in the project.

If the NetBSD Project were a large company, the NetBSD core group would
be the technical management.

No, it's not just dead weight. Rather, members of the core group set the
direction and goals of the NetBSD Project as a whole, promote people's
interest in the NetBSD Project and the system it produces, and consider
the serious architectural questions that need to be addressed if the
NetBSD Project is going to keep producing a viable system.

The Tcl Core Team (TCT) is a group of Tcl experts who collectively
manage the development of the open source Tcl core, including the Tcl
scripting language, the Tk toolkit, the Tcl Developer Exchange Web site,
and more. The Tcl Core Team was formed in August 2000 with an initial
membership elected by the Tcl community. bring some examples I'm aware of.
