Francesco: > I would ask ftp-masters about that. It would seem the /usr/sbin/gmt-coastline-download may no longer work if you choose the main ftp site: ftp://ftp.soest.hawaii.edu/gmt/ as it only has the latest 45mb version available as a single file. The sites marked in the script with a "*" do have the old versions, e.g.: ftp://ftp.scc.u-tokai.ac.jp/pub/gmt/ [the 2.1 version of the gshhs data was 30mb for full-res and 9.5mb for high-res .bzip2 dataset. compare to the huge fgfs-base package] if we wish to preserve the old versions maybe we should put a copy on Alioth(MkII) instead of relying on a 3rd party site which may go away at any time? (the .au ftp site doesn't work for me right now at all) Ultimately I'd like the zyGrib, opencpn, etc packages which also provide coastline copies to all depend on a single data package. (to this end I've already patched opencpn to use xtide's package) Hamish _______________________________________________ Pkg-grass-devel mailing list Pkgemail@example.com http://lists.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/pkg-grass-devel
