OK, I have build environment ready. I just don't see UbuntuGIS PPA
even I have in RC file defined

http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntugis/ubuntugis-unstable/ubuntu $DIST

$ sudo DIST=wily cowbuilder --create --distribution=$DIST
 -> Invoking pbuilder
  forking: pbuilder create --buildplace
/var/cache/pbuilder/base-wily-ubuntugis.cow --mirror
http://cz.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ --architecture amd64
--distribution wily --no-targz --extrapackages cowdancer
<- here --othermirror is missig

I don't see any UbuntuGIS PPA, I am not sure if it's OK.
