I'm forwarding this message from Uli, who is not on the time zone mailing list. Those of you who are on the list, please direct replies appropriately.
The zic.8 file that's part of the original distribution at ftp://elsie.nci.nih.gov/pub doesn't contain ".Dl" lines.
My best guess is that these are being introduced by a redistributor; someone on the list may have insights.
not sure if this is the right list to submit "code" changes to, but as
I'm working on getting the FreeBSD manpage corpus into shape for
mandoc/mdocml, there's a patch I'd like you to commit.
The patch fixes some missing quotes.
