This is a set of patches that makes use of GeoIP based information in Anaconda. GeoIP-based info is used to

nothing for the user (if they're lucky, they get their prefered language preset in the "Choose language"
dialog) it shows what has to be done to use GeoIP.

The first patch only removes unused variable which I came across while working on GeoIP integration.

For some other info see:

Thanks for taking a look at this feature. I still need to go through the patches.

One thing I'd like to see us try to do is using GeoIP data to set self.default in the timezone_gui.py file. This is something that Ubuntu does that I hear more about than anything else, and it seems somewhat easy to do.
