Well, there are two ways this can go. Novell eventually releases, it gets hacked into shape and released.
Or some group gets fed up, hacks the public code into shape, merges it with X (so it makes incompatable changes to what Novell is working on) and makes a public release and Novell's private work turns out to be wasted (or at least difficult to merge).
That said, I don't understand their attitude. Maybe they're working on their own snazzy features they want to keep to themselves. But to hold back bug-fixes just seems anti-social.
