:-( that's a problem :-(
The package is very big and complex, and it's not only a big effort to
import the sources only for the ubuntu builds ... but it is also a bit
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 :-( :-(

So, even I don't know how to check any legal issues about libace
package, I cannot take into consideration the rebuilding of libace

There is another solution ??

Dear all,
I'm trying to build a deb package for Ubuntu and one of the
requirements is the libace-dev package.
Opensuse build service reports that nothing provides libace-dev for Ubuntu...
... but it is one of the official package of Ubuntu:

Why is not provided also on opensuse build service ??

universe packages got not imported because that repo was not
clean legal wise.

So, if that package does not violate anything, you import the sources of
it into your project to build against it.
