Subject: Request from CLDR committee
The CLDR technical committee has been looking at issues that have come up in
connection with timezones, and have the following requests of the TZ group.
As discussed previously on this list, the CLDR project supplies
localizations for timezone identifiers, based on the TZ IDs from the TZ
database. The localizations can either be explicit strings, or if
unavailable, use the translated country name (where a country has only a
single timezone) or fall back to the last field of the TZID and the
translated country name. Thus in German:
America/Havana => "Kuba"
Europe/Moscow => "Moskau (Russische Föderation)"
America/Los_Angeles => "Los Angeles (Vereinigte Staaten)"
The process is somewhat more complicated than this description, but this
provides the gist. For other examples, see
