** Description changed:

  Availability
  ============
  Co-maintained and in sync with Debian GNOME.
  Built for all supported architectures.
  
  Rationale
  =========
  It is a simple standalone app to show the weather.
  
  If installed, it adds the weather status to the clock menu in GNOME
  Shell. (This was introduced in GNOME 3.24 and is available in Ubuntu
  17.04+.)
  
  The app optionally uses GNOME's geolocation services powered by geoclue.
  This can be enabled or disabled from GNOME Settings>Privacy>Location
  Services. GNOME shows an indicator in the right of the top bar when
  Location Services is in use.
  
  GNOME Weather has been part of core GNOME since GNOME 3.20 (early 2016).
  
  Security
  ========
  No known security issues
  
  https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/source-package/gnome-weather
  https://launchpad.net/gnome-weather/+cve
  
  Uses gjs/mozjs which the Ubuntu Security Team reluctantly accepted into main 
for gnome-shell
  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SecurityTeam/FAQ#mozjs
  
  Quality assurance
  =================
  - The Ubuntu Desktop bugs team will need to subscribe to this package
  
  https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-weather
  https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?src=gnome-weather
  https://bugzilla.gnome.org/buglist.cgi?quicksearch=product%3A"gnome-weather";
  
  No upstream tests or autopkgtests.
  
  Dependencies
  ============
  No universe binary dependencies
  
  Standards compliance
  ====================
- 4.1.1
+ 4.1.2
+ debhelper compat 11, minimal dh7 style rules
  
  Maintenance
  ===========
  - Actively developed upstream. Last release was 3.26.0 in September.
  https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-weather/log
  
- Debian packaging uses svn, but we're hoping to convert to git this year 
(which will allow for Ubuntu branches):
- https://sources.debian.net/src/gnome-weather/unstable/debian/
+ https://salsa.debian.org/gnome-team/gnome-weather
  
  Background information
  ======================
  The app is minimally feature complete.
  
  The weather data itself comes via libgweather which is written in C and
  uses libsoup and has been in main for years. I believe the default
  provider is METAR.
  
  See libgweather/weather-metar.c and libgweather/gweather-weather.c
