I like it.  It saves a step.

[GRASS-dev] Proposal for setting up of new locations in wxGUI


I would like to suggest a modification (even for G6) for the
Location Wizard:

When defining a new location from an existing dataset (like SHAPE
or GeoTIFF with proper metadata), it creates the location and then
brings you back to the  original startup screen, then you can "login"
into GRASS. But.. no maps there. So (new) users will be confused.

Change proposal:
Before reaching the startup screen again, ask if to import the map
which has been used for creating the location. Yes: do it; no: return
to startup screen.

What do you think?
