Durk: I've only seen some lone hangars with terrasync but no probably not all as they are for 850 format. As HB-GRAL stated some airports are way off in old 810 format, so using a custom start or tower view location from my groundnetworks might put you anywhere. But I've even had a dispute with Robin, so I've to check back 850 airport locations as soon as they're in git.



If you have committed apt.dat files, to robin peel than I think that we could consider committing your ground networks to the terrasync repository. We currently have already quite a few (if not most) ground networks  in the scenery that are based on future improvement of the scenery (in anticipation of the improved scenery generation process that Martin is putting a lot of effort into). So, if you have contributed new apt.dat info that would be used in this buidl process then it would be okay.  But, I suspect that your ground networks contain parking information only? I would rather see fully developed ground networks, that can also be used for AI purposes. 

So, in the end, I would recommend that instead of committing these data to the fgdata repository, you bundle them with your own scnery distribution instead (i.e. you in addition to the Terrain/ and Objects/ directories, you'd provide an additional Airports/ directory in your package. FlightGear 2.4.0 should be able to read the parking data when you include the new scenery folder in your path.
