Default Bug#607488: ITP: geoip-database-contrib -- MaxMind GeoIP (lite) binary database downloader script

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Ludovico Cavedon <cavedon@debian.org>

* Package name : geoip-database-contrib
Version : 1.0
Upstream Author : Ludovico Cavedon <cavedon@debian.org>
* URL : http://git.debian.org/?p=collab-maint/geoip-database-contrib.git
* License : GPL-2+
Programming Lang: bash
Description : MaxMind GeoIP (lite) binary database downloader script

GeoIP is a C library that enables the user to find the country that any IP
address or hostname originates from. It uses a file-based database.
.
This package contains a script that downloads the latest version of the binary
flavour of the MaxMind GeoLite databases. In particular:
- GeoLite Country
- GeoLite Country IPv6
- GeoLite City
- GeoLite ASN
.
This database simply contains IP blocks as keys, and countries/cities/ASNs as
values and it should be more complete and accurate than using reverse DNS
lookups.
.
The MaxMind database itself is distributed under a BSD-like license. However it
is made available in binary only format and the source code for generating it
is not provided.
