I have two question for the OBS-Admins:

First question:
Using the Download-On-Demand feature, it should be possible for every user to
import a third party repository, which could also be a universe mirror.
I guess, that you don't want for legal reasons?

Second questions:
Would you accept a global project for importing selected universe packages?
If yes, where should we request it?

Thanks for your effort.
I ran this script on a missing package and got the following error

service download_url failed: Running /usr/lib/obs/service/download_url
--protocol http --host --path
/ubuntu/pool/universe/a/ant/ant_1.9.6-1ubuntu1.orig.tar.gz --outdir
/lxc.tmp.18830/out No live log available: remote error: ant no logfile

As I wrote above, the _service file needs further adjustments as the simple
just create a simple template.

If you look at packages.ubuntu for ant, it lists:
Download Source Package ant:

You need to make sure, that each file is listed in _service.

You need to drop the release ["-ubuntu1" in that case] from the orig.tar
filename in nearly any case.
On some packages [like that] you have to change the extension of the orig.tar
from gz to xz [or bz2].

Native packages miss the debian.tar.xz file - you need to drop that entry and
remove the orig from the tar file.

In very rare cases, you have to add more files.
