Relay Geo information missing in Network Map

Description

In the Tor Browser Bundle, if I open the Network Map to view the list of relays, all of the relays have "?"s to the left of their name. This is in the 2.4.17-rc under Linux Mint. In the 2.3.25-12 edition, the relays had the flag of their country there. I don't know whether 2.4.17-rc is unable to read the country codes, whether that information is somehow being blocked, or what is causing this issue. Please fix.

It sounds like your TBB doesn't have a geoip file in it, or doesn't have a torrc line to point tor to the geoip file.

I think Erinn fixed this bug in the 0.2.4.17 TBB for Linux:
https://gitweb.torproject.org/torbrowser.git/commitdiff/89d664cf1d7e277cc9f83b7de4eea2f54fda6ab9
but it looks like she left it out of the changelog:
https://gitweb.torproject.org/torbrowser.git/blob/HEAD:/changelog.linux-2.4

Erinn, a) we should probably put it into the changelog, even retroactively, and b) what else are we leaving out of the changelogs? :)

Jesse -- this should be fixed in the currently released TBBs. Let me know if it works for you?

arma -- Yeah, I need a better approach to changelogs. TBB 2.x is going to be retired soon, but I can probably use the changes file approach until then, like you do.

What would be the best way to retroactively add a changelog entry? I left it like it was when I tagged, because that was the truth, but should I add it in the next changelog entry or go back and add it to the 2.4.17-beta-2 entry?

Go back and pretend history happened differently. And leave the git tags alone. It's the only way to keep things sane.

(Changelogs are primarily for the distant future, when you want to know what happened when. That's also the best reason why all the bugfixes you do should go into the changelog.)

Okay, changelog updated. I'm gonna close this, cypherpunks, but please reopen if you continue to have problems. Thanks!
