[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#727628: broken by weather.com URI change

Package: xfce4-weather-plugin
Version: 0.7.4-3+b1
Severity: grave
Tags: patch
Control: fixed -1 xfce4-weather-plugin/0.8.2-1


The version of xfce4-weather-plugin in wheezy uses the
wxdata.weather.com API which has changed its URI.  301 Permanent
Redirects are served but the plugin does not follow them.

weather.com is no longer used as a data source since version 0.8.0 so
I'm sure later versions will be unaffected.

Simply updating the plugin to the new URI fixes current weather data,
forecasts and the search feature.  Patch is attached.  Thanks!
