Thats how I took it too (from the OP) - though considering the efforts of
Andreas, Sonja, Henne, etc, etc - how could we not consider them an important
part of the community?

Not only do they contribute as their job demands, but, imho, they all have
gone above and beyond is support of OpenSUSE as a community effort. Should
Novell have assistance available? Sure, but I believe by providing the
framework, they have done just that. They have also worked with vendors to
assure compatibility, apply pressure on software companies to make Linux an
easier transition, and now have even started a podcast.

I'd say they damn well do plenty, and I appreciate that :)
