(I haven't checked.) The timezone information in upstream glibc is not going to be updated. Drepper said once that the sole purpose for this data in glibc is to test timezone support code in glibc. Almost everywhere timezones are packaged separately, the most usual name for the package is tzdata, the upstream location is ftp://elsie.nci.nih.gov/pub/tzdata2011k.tar.gz; additional information about tzdata can be found at http://www.twinsun.com/tz/tz-link.htm I suppose we can update tzdata inside our glibc package for this time, but the way to go is surely to package tzdata separately. -- ldv Content of type "application/pgp-signature" skipped
