I am developing with Django. For some projects postgis is used for geographic data. without this package the website will not work. We use it to calculating distances between a project (that is how it is called on the website) and the user to only show project within a certain radius and to show the user how far away the project is. This could be possible in other ways but that will make the query a lot slower since this is done in a request cycle.

JoshStrobl moved this task from Backlog to Accepted For Inclusion on the Package Requests board.
JoshStrobl added a project: Needs Maintainer.
JoshStrobl claimed this task.

Given nobody has stepped up in the month since this has been accepted for inclusion to provide a patch and become the maintainer, marking as WONTFIX.

I'll try to build a PostGIS package, since I need it myself. Will update.
