[PHP-DEV] Default long/lat. Why?


Probably a daft question, but why are the default long/lat set as

#define DATE_DEFAULT_LATITUDE "31.7667"
#define DATE_DEFAULT_LONGITUDE "35.2333"

?

Looks like the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

keep it in the reimplementation of the date stuff. Might kick it out in
PHP 6 :)

Actually it seems to be near Yerushalayim (Jerusalem?), Israel whichmakes some sense given Zend's origins.http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?searchtype=address&formtype=address&latlongtype=decimal&latitude=31.7667&longitude=35.2333Arpad

Exactly. And note where America is :)

Anyway, I see no reason not to keep it this way.

No, why? If I change it, it would be to 59.21 N, 9.608 E
