Netherlands/Twenthe is not in the locations list with:

No matches are found with:
fgrep -i Twenthe /usr/share/libgweather/*.xml

Was Twenthe removed after this bug was reported?
Comment 2 Edwin ten Brink 2009-01-10 10:28:50 EST
It indeed appears the location has been dropped from the locations list, probably in version 2.23.91. The only reference I could find stated:

"Drop a lot of cities that are not useful in this database"

It appears that the airport Twenthe which used to be a military airport but the military part was closed some years ago, and is no longer supported by libgweather (probably does not have its weather station operational anymore). All other weather sources in The Netherlands are military or civilian airports as well.

I'm closing this bug now since it cannot be fixed anymore.
