[tz] re : Time zones in Ukraine

Thank you guys for prompt answer, now I got it.
Will at least go and read what was that Rutenia :)

The another idea would be to keep somewhere list of active timezones 
along with tz database, but I understand that it would be almost 
impossible to add corresponding APIs everywhere.

[tz] Time zones in Ukraine

Hi.
I am aware about tz database for a while, and today, during FreeBSD 
installation found out that it still propose ancient and non-usable 
zones like Ruthenia, Zaporozhye or Crimea for time zone in Ukraine, 
while for last years only one time zone exists at the whole Ukraine area 
(except Crimea for now).
So, it would be nice to remove all of them except Ukraine/Kyiv, or is 
this not possible due to historical reasons (to keep history of all 
those time zones)?
Also, the other issue is that in Ukrainian language correct spelling is 
Kyiv, not Kiev (russian pronunciation).
It would be quite logical to change default zone to Europe/Kyiv.
Thanks.

[tz] Missing link to America/Montreal

Apologies for not catching this sooner:

In 2013, between 2013e and 2013i, America/Montreal was eliminated.  But there is not, as is usually done, a
link in the “backward” file.

Some others I looked at, like Antarctica/South_Pole, did get an entry in backward.

Is the an oversight or was it intentional?

Yes, thanks, that's the simplest interpretation.  I've reverted the most 
recent change to the experimental repository, so the Crimean data has 
gone back to that of 2014b.

[tz] Asia rules change

Hi there!

 

I’m agree with this comment in asia rules file:

 

# From Phil Pizzey (2009-04-02):

# ...I think I may have spotted an error in the timezone data for

# Jordan.

# The current (2009d) asia file shows Jordan going to daylight

# saving

# time on the last Thursday in March.

#

# Rule  Jordan      2000  max          -  Mar   lastThu     0:00s 1:00  S

#

# However timeanddate.com, which I usually find reliable, shows Jordan

# going to daylight saving time on the last Friday in March since 2002.

# Please see

# <a href="http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/timezone.html?n=11">

# http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/timezone.html?n=11

# </a>

 

It’s real that Jordan makes transition to DST on last Friday of march. For this reason I’ve changed 2 rules

 

Rule       Jordan   2000      2001      -              Mar        lastThu  0:00s     1:00       S

Rule       Jordan   2014      max       -              Mar        lastThu  24:00     1:00       S

 

To

 

Rule       Jordan   2000      2001      -              Mar        lastFri    0:00s     1:00       S

Rule       Jordan   2014      max       -              Mar        lastFri    24:00     1:00       S

 

I’va attached my copy of changed file.
