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 ?

We don't need to, but we discussed it as a) good to encourage updating
b) more common now that its default to get updates.
