You can simply hit the flag out of date button.

There is no reason to create a patch unless there is something really bizarre with the update that you think the maintainer isn't smart enough to figure out.

No, but I can backport the patch.

The developer has updated the package to fix a 404 for some stations, but did not release a new tar ball. could you provide a clone directly from his repository? Thanks in advance

Got an error during build:

File "<string>", line 1
import sys ; print [p for p in sys.path if p.startswith('/usr/lib/python2.')][0]

SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Adopted and fixed up. Changes:

Installs the weatherrc file.
