#20492 closed Bug (fixed)

Broken external link in ref/contrib/gis/geoip/

Reported by: bmispelon Owned by: nobody
Component: Documentation Version: master
Severity: Normal Keywords:
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: yes UI/UX: no

Description

In the first paragraph of https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/contrib/gis/geoip/, the link pointing to http://www.maxmind.com/en/python (the GPL-licensed library) gives a 404.

It seems that this particular library is not supported anymore.

I is still referenced on that page (note the "legacy" part of the URL): http://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/legacy/downloadable#Python-10 but the link there is just for a tarball, there doesn't seem to be a dedicated page for it anymore.

I'd suggest just removing the link, as it is mainly informational.
