Dear time zone data maintainers,
I'm a developer at ProZ.com, a website for human language translators.
One of our users has reported that the time zone names for the time
zones in Indonesia, specifically Asia/Jakarta, Asia/Pontianak,
Asia/Makassar, and Asia/Jayapura, are incorrect in the current time zone
According to her, and to the following references, it appears that these
time zone abbreviations should be updated as follows:
ID offset current new
Asia/Jakarta UTC+7 WIT WIB (Waktu Indonesia Barat)
Asia/Pontianak UTC+7 WIT WIB (Waktu Indonesia Barat)
Asia/Makassar UTC+8 CIT WITA (Waktu Indonesia Tengah)
Asia/Jayapura UTC+9 EIT WIT (Waktu Indonesia Timur)
I noticed a similar bug report from 2005 but I was unable to find any
I hope this gives enough information to update these time zone names.
Thanks to all of you who help to maintain this valuable resource.
