  Description     : MaxMind GeoIP (lite) binary database downloader script

 GeoIP is a C library that enables the user to find the country that any IP
 address or hostname originates from. It uses a file-based database.
 This package contains a script that downloads the latest version of the binary
 flavour of the MaxMind GeoLite databases. In particular:
  - GeoLite Country
  - GeoLite Country IPv6
  - GeoLite City
  - GeoLite ASN
 This database simply contains IP blocks as keys, and countries/cities/ASNs as
 values and it should be more complete and accurate than using reverse DNS
 The MaxMind database itself is distributed under a BSD-like license. However it
 is made available in binary only format and the source code for generating it
 is not provided.
