Description

Given that MaxMind GeoIP package requires License Registration w.e.f. December 30 2019, this will impact all packages dependent on GeoIP which includes but not limited to ntopng, pfBlocker. While pfBlocker has its own update to handle registration keys, other packages have yet been updated.

It doesn't make sense to have each package maintain a copy of the same DB and having to configure the registration keys multiple times and storing multiple copies of the DB. Propose to have single package with the other packages using the common DB.
