Well, I have been trying to switch to openSUSE from Ubuntu, but I cant
get this to work.
I need to upgrade a package that is installed by the default, orca and
at-spi. I usually check out the latest trunk through svn.
I have been trying to do
zypper si -d orca at-spi but the source packages are not available and
so i am not able to build the dependencies so that i can compile and
install the new versions.

This would work if

1) you enable the source repository, try 'zypper lr' to check
if it's already there. To enable it, use 'zypper mr -e ...'.
If it's not there, use 'zypper ar

2) the source repository contained dependencies. Unfortunately this
isn't the case due to a bug in the repository creation script.

First, many thanks for all the help.
The repository was already there so I tried:
zypper mr -e ... but it didn't work. Is this correct?

You have to substitute the '...' with a number. For me, zypper lr says
# | Alias | Name | Enabled | Refresh
1 | KDE:KDE4:UNSTABLE:Desktop | KDE:KDE4:UNSTABLE:Desktop | Yes | Yes
2 | openSUSE 11.1-0 | openSUSE 11.1-0 | Yes | Yes
3 | repo-non-oss | openSUSE-11.1-Non-Oss | Yes | Yes
4 | repo-source | openSUSE-11.1-Source | Yes | Yes
5 | repo-update | openSUSE-11.1-Update | No | Yes

so I'd use 'zypper mr -e 4'

But 'zypper si' still won't work because of 2), this needs
to be fixed on our side.
