Subject: IANA time zone registration - proposal

[This was sent to some IETF mailing lists by me and someone suggested I send
it to this list also]

This is REV -00 of the proposal - comments welcome. Data in in it can easily
updated. (Like the TZ names updated to latest copy of data)

A couple of years ago there was talk on the CALSCH mailing list to have an
IANA time zone registration process. I have submitted a proposal for that
registry to the IETF.

A copy can be found at:


And an HTML version:


I am adding the POLYGON property targeted for the -01 version that has an
ADD/DELETE parameter to allow for the optional inclusion of
latitude/longitude geographic areas to be included that include (add) and
exclude (delete) areas from the time zone geographic region (again from the
CALSCH mailing list discussions).
