Actually it uses neither. It calls dpkg to install the needed
packages and dpkg-source/dpkg-buildpackage to build the packages.
It's basically the same code used for rpms with just different
command calls.

In this case, how are the files retrieved by the build service ?

The build clients asks the repository server for the packages.
There are no mirrors involved at all. Local building with osc
is a different issue, of course. osc asks software.opensuse.org
for a package, software.opensuse.org redirects to a mirror.
If software.opensuse.org doesnt know about the package osc
falls back to retrieving the package from the buildservice.
But software.opensuse.org does not have debian packages, right ? So if I want to build locally, I would need to translate the list of packages into their typical location on a debian/ubuntu server ?

cheers,

David
