Short reply on Thomas' remark, I'll reply on Gunnar's email later:
- the packages build on the openSUSE build server are, native Fedora, 
Mandriva, Ubuntu, Debian packages!   They are -->not<-- openSUSE specific.

Takes this repository as an example:

One spec file (for rpm based distributions) results in packages for many 
different distributions and architectures.  This is done by loading an image 
with e.g. Mandriva and perform the build the build of the spec file in that 
image.  Really wonderful
