Current status of proxy sites in Google? - I have a legit use & don't want a ban

I want to mirror part of one of my sites on another. The 'mother' site uses complicated software which I don't want the hassle of installing on the 'daughter' site.

A proxy script might be a time saving solution, but I don't want the content it 'extracts' being penalised by Google.

Any clues as to how Google currently treats proxy scraper sites?

Not so well. But I think you already knew the answer to this question, otherwise everyone would be doing this.

Yes, I think they'd have to filter them, otherwise they'd be indexing huge fake sites.

Could still be useful, but you'd have to modify the software to limit its bounds.

Google suggests that you nofollow the proxy script folder and corresponding generated pages.
