Got an update for a package I wrote (a long time ago) and was really curious what I messed up!

Turns out that they finally added SSL to the server and changed the URL. Not that exciting after all.

When writing ubuntu-geoip and pushing it into the Ubuntu Desktop I was convinced that all we needed to get interesting location usage was a consistent provider.

No one really used it in the end. The best usage was just automatically detecting timezone.

I'm not sure how we could have changed things but it still seems location is only used on devices that have built-in GPS, even though location is rarely calculated using it.
