[Pkg-lxde-maintainers] Bug#918467: lxpanel: Weather plugin uses obsolete APIs, does not work.

Package: lxpanel
Version: 0.9.3-1
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream

The weather plugin of lxpanel does not update the weather information
any more. A look at the source reveals that a query is made to
yahooapis.com, which does not seem to exist any more.

Yahoo does have another weather API (see
https://developer.yahoo.com/weather/ ), but it seems to require
authentication, API keys etc.
