Bug Description


libgweather 3.36.1 is a bug-fix release as part of GNOME 3.36.


This version works around the unavailability of the NOAA weather services by using very short-term forecasts as current weather conditions.

Sometimes the current weather is not available because the NOAA weather servers aren't working correctly. Version 3.36.1 fixes the unavailability of current temperature in some locations.

[Test case]

Make sure that gnome-weather is still working properly and the weather in gnome-shell is shown when gnome-weather is installed.

[Regression potential]

The regression potential is low since the changes in version 3.36.1 are small.


libgweather 3.36.1 has been successfully built as a no-change backport from Groovy to Focal in my PPA and runs fine:

That .diff is actually auto-generated from the package in my PPA:

The package is built fine for all architectures in Focal and installs and runs OK. Maybe the .diff got corrupted from downloading and uploading again!

Could you please try the package from the PPA?

I reapplied your debian/changelog directly and pushed to focal (pending approval). Thanks a lot!
