I doubt they would acknowledge it as an upstream thing. The issue may have been present since the porting to GTK+ 3.0 in 2010:

https://git.gnome.org/browse/libgweather/commit/?h=gnome-3-0&id=c301fd22

My theory is that the template name in LP should have been changed then from "libgweather" to "libgweather-3.0", but that did not happen.

https://translations.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libgweather

And that may be the reason why the langpack builder keeps creating files named "libgweather.mo".

So the change may be an SRU candidate if it's considered important enough, but my belief is that the 'right' fix in 18.04+ is to change the langpacks somehow and drop the patch. And if nobody has time to do that, keeping the "hack" as an Ubuntu/Debian delta for now is another option.
