That's a nice idea, although zipped files on the ftp server work fine. If we are going to improve the distribution then an RSS feed announcing updates would be rather useful.

	Subject: TZ patches via email vs. non-ASCII encoding
	As a solution to the problem of faithfully getting patches through email (with non-ASCII encoding, long lines, and other issues), may I suggest using an svn repository with online anonymous read-only access, and just sending a summary to the mailing list and a link to the online diffs?
