Only stable releases (currently 7.0). Development daily builds I would

I end up with
export DIST=wily ; sudo cowbuilder --create --distribution=$DIST
-> Invoking pbuilder
forking: pbuilder create --buildplace
http://ftp.cz.debian.org/debian/ --architecture amd64 --distribution
wily --no-targz --extrapackages cowdancer
I: Running in no-targz mode
I: Distribution is wily.

The mirror points to debian instead of ubuntu. I don't know why. Here

Thanks in advance! Martin
