Hi all,
 Sorry for the cross-post but this I felt is important enough to be
sent to atleast the groups I need to.

I made a rant at

Both of the issues outlined are upstream issues, i.e. both of them are
GNOME issues.

I also filed the bug at bugzilla

This is when Pune is set to become part of Metro club.


So, if anybody knows how this can be done better please put some info.
on the bug therein please.

I think it might be good to also use the bug to update if there are
details of your city but is not in the database they have.
such as the coordinates. Not so sure about weather stuff though.

Another interesting point through that journey is my stoppage at
http://www.imd.ernet.in/  where they are thinking of overhauling the
website. I do hope some of the people here or anywhere else make sure
that these guys use open standards and the portal doesn't just become
another one-way traffic but truly a two-way sorta communication from
where we the indian public can use the data being generated (more so
in villages and not so connected places)

Comments, suggestions all invited.
