I am one of the developers of Debian Linux, a popular free Linux
distribution. I was asked to fix bugs in this program that were filed by
our users in the bug tracking system. The most serious bug is "the
missing timezones". Apparently, your program included some timezones in
an earlier version (I would guess around 1994) that were later dropped.
The zones that users most ask about is something like US/Eastern,
/US/Central, /US/Western, and similar things for other countries. I
understand you probably don't want to release an official version with
these zones defined, but what would be the best way for me to do it in
order to fix it in the distribution?
I looked at the source, and saw that you already use "Link" to link some
of the obsolete zones. Would it be wise to link those old zones to the
corresponding new timezone?
Proudly running Debian Linux! Linux vs. Windows is a no-Win situation....
