Package: wmfrog
Version: 0.3.1+git20140909-1
Severity: normal


wmfrog is no more functioning because of discontinued service on URLs
used to get metar data in /usr/lib/wmfrog/weather.pl

This data can now be fetched from this URL :

and changing $mode from "http" to "ftp" in weather.pl

Hope this might help, sorry for my poor writing 
Thank you
