You've been added.

As for your script I have a few questions/comments:

  1. Any reason mapproxy deb can't be added to ubuntgis-repo? (Is the deb source available?)
  2. Since it's just a python app I'm wondering why not just use the pip install method and specify a target version?
  3. wget -c is not advised as a script run a second time may fail to grab the newest versions of files.

'wget -c' is fine if the filename is versioned (ie guaranteed not to change), as seems the case here. (if the download file just has a generic name, wget's timestamp option must be used instead to avoid half of one file and the other half of another)

the install script looks well written to my eye.

No. The debian package is just new and I haven't found time to bring this forward. I contacted a DebianGIS packager (David Paleino) that was interested in MapProxy?, but he is busy right now. The debian directory is included in the MapProxy? repository.

Does it have to be added to DebianGIS at first, or is it OK to add new packages to UbuntuGIS?

  1. Since it's just a python app I'm wondering why not just use the pip install method and specify a target version?

Some people (me included) don't like to install (unmanaged) Python packages into the system installation. It's to easy to overwrite or get conflicts with existing system packages. I use virtualenv in most cases to circumvent this, but a deb package is more clean IMO.

  1. wget -c is not advised as a script run a second time may fail to grab the newest versions of files.

I will add the timestamp option as Hamish suggested to be on the safe side.
