Subject: gnome-applets: New Orleans weather has no forecast
Date: Tue, 15 Dec 2009 17:28:55 +0000
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: gnome-applets
Version: 2.28.0-3
Severity: normal

I have two weather applets on my panel, one for New Orleans and one for
Houston[0].  The Houston one provides a forecast, whilst the New Orleans
one does not.  Because of #535638, the ICAO code for New Orleans is KNEW
and the one for Houston is KHOU.  KHOU is William P. Hobby Airport,
which is a major airport in Houston (although not the largest), while
KNEW is a smaller, local airport (New Orleans Lakefront Airport), which,
according to Wikipedia, was badly damaged by Hurricane Katrina.

As a consequence, it makes perfect sense that there is no forecast for
New Orleans (KNEW) where there would be one for New Orleans (KMSY) and
Houston (KHOU).  However, the GUI provides no way to choose another
airport in the New Orleans area.  A user may legitimately want either
KNEW (because it is in the city proper) or KMSY (because it has a
forecast), but this is not possible.

[0] That would be New Orleans, Louisiana, United States, and Houston,
Texas, United States, for those unfamiliar.
