Thank you for the suggestion.
But this arise two questions:
- the source is in Debian format 3.0 quilt ; Opensuse build service
support this format for ubuntu builds ??
- on the previous email was told to me that universe repository has
not been added due legal issues ; so, I can be sure do not break some
legal rules importing the sources of a package present in the universe
ubuntu repository ??

The package is very big and complex, and it's not only a big effort to

silly from the user point of view that for installing my stuff they
requires a different ace library package.
And more important, because libace is used by a lot of other
packages... rebuilding it into my repository can create conflict
problems when the users install my package and another package from
the universe repository both depending on libace :-( :-(

If you import the unmodified sources of the library and all its
dependencies, the built library should be binary compatible.

I need e.g. for home:e9925248:grandorgue the wxWidgets package. So
I added to the project a stub for this packages and all missing predecessors,
which downloads the source via source services from the ubuntu mirrors. Use
build is enabled, while publish is disabled - so external users will install
the library from the Ubuntu archive.
