Also, sent the patches upstream as CPAN#36708. (Closes: #304962).

    2007-12-01 - gregor herrmann <> libgeo-metar-perl (1.14-6) UNRELEASED; urgency=low [ gregor herrmann ] * debian/control: Added: Vcs-Svn field (source stanza); Vcs-Browser field (source stanza); Homepage field (source stanza). * Set Maintainer to Debian Perl Group. * Use dist-based URL in debian/watch.

    2004-09-12 - Jay Bonci <> libgeo-metar-perl (1.14-4) unstable; urgency=low * Adds debian/watch so uscan will actually work

    2004-08-11 - Jay Bonci <> libgeo-metar-perl (1.14-3) unstable; urgency=low * Applied final version of Timo Hietanen's patch (Closes: #262397) - also grabs the altimeter setting if it's reported in hectopascals (Q\d\d\d\d instead of A\d\d\d\d) - dont's set $self->{MOD} to "AUTO" by default - tries a bit harder not to mix up weather groups with station identifiers - recognizes the visibility setting "CAVOK" (ceiling and visibility OK) * Time Hietanen also submitted a fix to clean up code warnings (Closes: #181407) - Doesn't recognize the METAR tag dddVddd (d = digit), which defines wind direction's variation. - Assumes that station ID begins with the letter 'K' (matches /K[A-Z]{3,3}/), while it should match /[A-Z]{4,4}/ - Tries to find the visibility information even though $self->{visibility} isn't defined (information missing from the METAR report). This leads to a couple of warnings about uninitalized variables. * Updated test suite to use Test::More instead of Test
