I don't know how the build system works on the server side: does it use deboostrap and pbuilder, which are similar to build for Suse AFAIK (build a chroot env for building/testing packages) ? Or is the build environment built differently ? I couldn't get this information from the log of a successfull build.

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 ?

Is there a reason for not using deboostrap/pbuilder ? As they exist for this exact purpose (building/testing pkgs in clean environments), and can retrieve sources directly from mirrors, this would make things easier, no ?
