Correct that we do not have any patches from ourselves, however in the past
needed to build it ourselves in order to prevent strange dependencies on non-
existing packages or packageversions.

Also we have changed the build process to take into account system libraries

that are normally already installed on the system (e.g. zlib, jpeg, etc )
way Chromium would be better integrated.

ah okay. But do you think it will be better if we just work with the chrome
engineers who are responsible for openSUSE builds ? Since they already make
seperate packages for openSUSE (instead of a generic linux rpm) they may be
interested in optimizing things.

Thanks for your explanation.
