Existing (broken) patch improved. Tested over 1.2.4 and working OK.

Needs clean-up of some unneeded settings, but for now this settings remains as noops. Django API keeps the same too.

There is any chance for this to be into 1.4 ??
What needs to be done?
I managed to easily port to 1.3.X branch, and I can expect it to be easily ported to 1.4 too.

(Working at the djangounderthehood sprint)

The default is now openstreetmap, so most people won't see the problem.

We did verify that the v2 google api is indeed still used in the django/contrib/gis/templates/gis/google/google-maps.js.

Note: does mention you can change the map template, but it doesn't document which template to use for google.

An option could be to remove the google template altogether. Do we want to spend the time fixing the google template?

It all depends on user's interest. FWIW, I'm not. But if anyone provides a good patch with tests and docs, I'll take the time to review it.

If it is really broken and noone intends to take the time to update it, then yes, it would be better to remove it.

I'm going to remove contrib.gis.maps in #26697. I'm putting a link to this ticket in the release notes so if anyone is actually still using it, they can alert us.
