Description

Hey everyone,

my relay node is listed in Atlas with the wrong country code: https://atlas.torproject.org/#details/BDFB889DC600AC0B0CB9F3BA6E052D3A258DAD81

It's listed as Italy, but it is actually hosted in France (FR). Looks like in older Geo IP databases the address is still listed in Italy. RIPE shows in fact the correct geo location: https://apps.db.ripe.net/search/query.html?searchtext=79.137.35.149#resultsAnchor#resultsAnchor

Any idea on how to fix this?

We're using MaxMind's latest GeoLite2 City database from January 1, 2017, which resolves this IP address to Italy. That's also what MaxMind's online demo shows. I believe that RIPE is correct, but we're not messing with their database by mixing in RIPE data. If we started doing that, we'd soon be doing nothing else, and this seems like a rather bad use of our time. Sorry, you'll have to wait until there's a MaxMind database with a fix and for us to update to that. Could be in the first week of February. Closing.
