There are also problems to be solved with Geo::Coordinates::OSGB
in that the licensing of the data included from the Ordnance Survey
Can we get round it by installing Geo::Coordinates::OSGB separately
(maybe with cpanm) or does the Debian package insist on all its Perl
dependecies being Debian-packaged as well? This affects the
Cambridge guide as well as the Oxford one.
How hard would it be to move away from needing Geo::Coordinates::OSGB at
all? I've certainly put off adding things to the Oxford Guide because of
the hassle of having to convert to OS Grid co-ords from lat/long as produced
by my phone's GPS and as easily available from the permalinks on
OpenStreetMap. I'd much prefer the front-end to use lat/long, but I don't
know how tricky that is, and if that would release the project from the
requirement to use the OSTN02 data.
