Package: xfce4-weather-plugin
Version: 0.8.3-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I live in one, if not probably the largest city in the world. If I use auto-
detect location, instead of manually inputing the area where I am really
living, it will pick an area very far from me in the same city (Mexico City),
where weather conditions can differ a lot since there's also a huge difference
in altitude. Even if I manually input the area where I am, the weather seems to
be quite off, comparing it with some websites like google or weather.com, I
have seen differences of 5-8 Celsius. I'm not sure where the data is coming
from but it's not accurate.
