[DebianGIS-dev] Bug#475533: proj: Incorrect definition for EPSG:28992 (RD)

Package: proj
Version: 4.4.9d-2
Severity: normal


I looked around for the right place to report this but could find one. The
problem is that the epsg file in proj4 contains the wrong definition for
EPSG:28992. It should be:

<28992> +proj=sterea +lat_0=52.15616055555555 +lon_0=5.38763888888889
+k=0.999908 +x_0=155000 +y_0=463000 +ellps=bessel +units=m
+no_defs <>

The current definition is missing the towgs84 parameter. It appears this was
corrected in version 4.5 and broken again in 4.6. There have been a number of
reports about it around the place:


Hopefully it can be corrected at least in debian, and perhaps someone knows
the right place to report this.

Thanks in advance,
