Control: tags 687253 + wontfix Hi karme, Thanks for taking the time to report this, and sorry about the delay in replying. I have spent a little time investigating this today.
The geographiclib-tools all default to looking for the datasets in /usr/share. The build process defaults to this location when the package is built, because this is the standard place according to Debian Policy: https://www.debian.org/doc/packaging-manuals/fhs/fhs-2.3.html#USRSHAREARCHITECTUREINDEPENDENTDATA As you probably never need to alter the downloaded dataset, this should not really be a problem. It just requires the download script to be run with root privileges. I am sure we could confirm with Charles Karney (the author of GeographicLib) the license for these datasets. But I think it might be more of a practical issue to package them. They exist as multiple compressed archives, and would need to be individually downloaded, and repackaged. Then it would be harder to work out if one of them had been updated in the future. Regards, Ross
