I was told that Gnome projects does now build against the :Update repos
instead of the plain base distros which provide the GA version.

This is usually a bad idea because

1. It does trigger unneeded build load and force users to download more
   packages without need.
2. It can create incompatibilities, since a build on a updated system might
   not work on a GA version. While a compile on GA should always work on
   a updated system. The only exception are kernel modules here (and libzypp
   on 10.1)

Can you tell me a reason why you need to compile against the :Update
projects ?
