but there needs to be a mechanism in place for bug reporting and
resolution when problems arise with OBS packages.

One would think Novell would jump at the chance to handle bug resolution of OBS
packages.

First of all you need to draw a line between devel projects like Base:System
and home projects. Home projects are the playground of their respective
owner and no other is responsible. If you use packages from there you're the
only one to blame. After all, if these were packages offered from some
random site you would contact the site owner and not the company that hosts
the server.

Most packages in devel projects have a bugowner and you can assign reports
in bugzilla to them. You get the maintainer via
'osc maintainer <project> <package>'
but osc only gets you the name, not the full address so you're better off
checking via the web.

Novell could lend a hand review the build details and solve any issues
with the package and then give it the "official stamp" and market the fact
that opensuse packages are current through XYZ version based on the OBS
build.

No company could afford the resources to do such a thing!
