We've talked about this. You're well aware that this isn't an accurate portrayal of the situation. I'm happy to guide you (or anyone else) through the remedy. What you're looking for is continuation of the preferential treatment that distros have historically received and unfortunately, that avenue has changed shape. Your gripe seems to be focused on the requirement of having a billing account now, regardless of the fact that the end goal is the same -- for distros (non-profits) to have free access.
If the remedy consists of creating a billing account, applying as a non-profit, or opening support tickets, I am still going to give it a pass.
The short story doesn't accurately reflect reality. There's still upstream support, you've just not been willing to conform to the new officially supported process.
But it does reflect reality; it has been broken for a month and my post on chromium-packagers has proved to be a dead end. On the mailing list dedicated to Chromium packagers, there has been zero official guidance on the issue.
If anyone wants help in getting Geolocation working again, please let me know.
If anyone wants to give a go, feel free to ping me on IRC for access to the project in the API Console.
