Bug#252899: Packaged Scenery Areas for Flightgear

Saikrishna Arcot
As per suggestion 3 above, what if a snapshot of the scenery at release
time was taken, and is split into regions (continents, perhaps?) and
released as packages to complement flightgear?

I prefer using mechanisms provided upstream, as this is easier on the
Debian infrastructure - which is not built to distribute huge
amounts of data, IMO.

Also note that the proposed packages don't replace the terrasync
solution, which is capable of downloading scenery on the fly
(literally). You can't do that (easily) with a package approach.
