Stephen, Thanks for the prompt reply, can you direct me to that link? As far as subpixel hinting is concerned, if it violates patents...I'll remove it.

Here is a link about the subpixel hinting stuff - http://opensuse-community.org/SubpixelHinting
As for the linking to other packages in other projects: Under the list of your current packages in your project (about the middle of the screen), there are 2 links. One is to add a new package, [Add Package], and the second is to link to another package in another project, [Link Package from other Project]. Once you click on it, you will see 3 boxes. The first one is the name of the project that you want to connect to, the second is the name of the package, and the third I usually leave blank, but its for if you want to name it differently in your local project.
Stephen, I found the right place to link the file, however...I couldn't quite add autoconf213 which is present in this link:- http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.0/noarch/autco.......
I tried adding "mozilla" and even "http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.0/" into the 1st line...and in the 2nd line I added the file name...autoconf.xxx. It still won't take..any suggestions?
What you need is the build service project name. Its probably something like Mozilla.
It could be "Mozilla", "mozilla" or "mozilla/openSUSE_11.0"...neither of them works..
the project name is (first box): mozilla
the package is(second box): autoconf213
That worked for my project.
Thanks...that worked :) Now to check if the system-cairo enabled xulrunner for mozilla will build against the autconf213 rpm.
