Bug Description

[ Description ]

The second stable release in the 3.28 series.

[ QA ]

Run Ubuntu session, expect the shell to show weather information and not to crash on timezone changes

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates/GNOME

[ Regresison potential ]

Weather location might be leaked. However this is very safe as upstream fix comes with proper testing.

It's uploaded, thanks.

I did make some changes though.

  - Drop the debian/rules changes - they made the package fail to build! (and aren't required for the SRU).
  - debian/control.in, debian/gbp.conf: Use the right branch.

Hello errors.ubuntu.com, or anyone else affected,

Accepted libgweather into bionic-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libgweather/3.28.2-1~ubuntu18.04.1 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from verification-needed-bionic to verification-done-bionic. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-bionic. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days.
