Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 400131
[PATCH] intlclock: fill in more information automatically
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:11:39 EDT
Right now, if you just fill in a name and lat/lon for a location, the location
is silently discarded. The attached:
- fills in timezone from lat/lon, if possible
- fills in weather info from lat/lon, if possible
The find_timezone function is moved someplace slightly more appropriate, in case
other classes need to call it.
Patch is against 2.20.1-7.fc9.

Fill in more info automatically from user input
That being said...
If there's any widget we have right now that *screams* for online desktop
integration, this is it. Ideally, the location add/edit dialog would be
Location name: [ ] [ Find ]
[ Details ] [ Cancel ] [ OK ]
If you just enter a location name (such as 'Boston', or 'London, UK', or
whatever), it queries your handy map server such as google or yahoo, pulls the
lat/lon, and then automatically fills in the timezone and weather info. The
'Details' link allows you to manually edit the automatically-set information.
Bonus points if you get firefox urlbar-style autocompletion in the name entry,
such that typing in 'Columbus' gives you a dropdown that lists 'Columbus,
Georgia, United States; Columbus, Ohio, United States', etc.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Meh, this should probably be upstream.
