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.

I do not see how you encourage people via that. You just possibly introduce
binary incompatibilities if people just add the Gnome repo without the Update

Then can't you get bin incompats the other way? Ie without updates.
