We used to have a SKU for providing support, but when we had it, barely
anyone used it.   So it was discontinued.

You can gain support today as a SUSE customer, which reuses the existing
support organization.

Ideally though, we would like to have a network of partners that can
provide support for developers and that have a relationship with our
engineering team to be able to escalate L3 issues to us.

The logistics to provide direct tech support are too complicated.  You
can still get support if you engage for example the consulting
organization of Novell, but it comes with a relatively high price tag.
