Fedora is already providing this service, but it makes more sense
provide it from gnome (Zeeshan and Bastien concur with this PoV).

Please arrange Ubuntu VM, or run the service from within jhbuild,
geoclue depends on recent versions of glib, apparently, which the
gnome servers can't provide.

Target DNS name: geolocation.gnome.org

We do have the capability to run that on one of our Ubuntu machines.

The package we should use is probably geoclue-ubuntu-geoip [1], do we
need anything else?

I did request a Fedora 20 VM at OSUOSL and will move forward as soon
as that will be approved and up.

Currently neither Debian nor Ubuntu are shipping the server-side bits
of geoclue and RHEL / EPEL 6 do have an older libglib than the one we
need to have the package built and installed on our RHEL 6 machines.

That said Fedora 20 provides the package we need [1], thus the
decision to request a VM with that distribution.

I'll keep the ticket updated as things move forward.

Seems OSUOSL finally provided us with a VM to set geolocation.gnome.org up. I'll work on setting up the 
service as soon as possible within the next two weeks.

Can you please confirm the correct package I should use is geoclue2 from the F20 repositories? do you have 
some documentation to set the service up and running?
