The documentation has a development chapter that should cover the most important stuff.

The source for the documentation is here: https://github.com/mapproxy/mapproxy/tree/master/doc

Someone needs to create these packages. We don't have resources to officially support them (and to build them for each release).
The DEBs at http://mapproxy.org/static/rel/ are inofficaly and are only built for the OSGeo LiveDVD.

We could document DEB/RPM packages if someone steps forward to build these for each new release.

I made a comment to Angelos pull request, if you mean that: https://github.com/mapproxy/mapproxy/pull/44

How about: skipping layer 'osm' for WMTS service, grid 'global_geodetic_sqrt2' of cache 'osm_cache' is not compatible with WMTS
