#3059: r.external.out does not write CRS information
 Reporter:  sbl             |      Owner:  grass-dev@…
     Type:  defect          |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal          |  Milestone:  7.0.5
Component:  Default         |    Version:  7.0.4
 Keywords:  r.external.out  |        CPU:  Unspecified
 Platform:  Unspecified     |
 At least for GeoTiffs, which is the format I used, files created with
 r.external.out do not contain any CRS information.

 The CRS is a central piece of information for a spatial data set and
 should not get lost during export.

 In order to reproduce try:
 g.proj -g
 r.external.out directory=tmp extension=.tif format=GTiff
 r.mapcalc expression="test=1"
 gdalinfo $GISDBASE/$LOCATION/$MAPSET/tmp/test.tif | grep -A 5 "Coordinate
