FEDORA-2018-bb9742efef created by pghmcfc 4 years ago for Fedora 28

Final database update from Maxmind. There will be no further updates of the free databases, so geolocation data from the legacy GeoIP library will become increasingly inaccurate over time.

How to install

sudo dnf upgrade --refresh --advisory=FEDORA-2018-bb9742efef

Any plan to upgrade to IP2Location LITE database?

Re: IP2Location LITE database - certainly not for this package, which has to be compatible with the GeoIP library, and I'm pretty sure the IP2Location databases have their own API. So, like the GeoLite2 libraries from Maxmind, they need their own packages for the library and data, and their clients need to specifically support those APIs. I expect this support will start to appear soon in upstream projects, but the libraries and databases will have to be introduced in Fedora as separate packages.

Also, there's a section in the IP2Location FAQ that casts doubt on the the databases being redistributable, despite their licenses:

https://lite.ip2location.com/faqs

"You can redistribute one copy of the LITE database with your application with attribution. However, you need to inform all users to register for an individual license in http://lite.ip2location.com to download monthly updates. Third party database repository is not allowed."

Having the database in Fedora would surely be a "third party database repository".
