Description of the change

I created a branch for the patch in bug 719324. From its description:

According to rfc2616 HTTP request methods are case-sensitive. Currently ubunt-geoip-provider makes an HTTP GET request with a lowercase method name.

get /lookup HTTP/1.1

GET /lookup HTTP/1.1

While web servers (like Apache and Squid) accept the lowercase method name, it may not be the case for some less liberal servers.

It seems packaging for this is maintained at lp:~ubuntu-desktop/ubuntu-geoip/ubuntu

Probably wise for this branch to to re-based against that and proposed to be merged there.

Just thought i'd add that this package declares itself as using quilt for a patching system, and this branch directly edits the upstream code.

I'd be surprised if upstream wouldn't accept a branch directly against lp;ubuntu-geoip fixing it upstream, meaning no need to start carrying patches at package level.

That's right, please use patch system, put it into debian/patches and forward patch to upstream. Also as Dave wrote, change should be pushed into lp:~ubuntu-desktop/ubuntu-geoip/ubuntu then sponsor pushes changes to archive as well.

Aside from the above suggestions, the patch in question looks okay to me.
