My definition of "everybody" does not allow you to deduct that from
the information shared on the tzdb.

With currently the last edit on 14 October, that is not so long after
my report of the bug to the tz mailing list. So the tz editor in
question did not get confused and was outside your "almost everybody".

And even worse, the bug was already made obvious in February 2011 in
Wikipedia at what you claim to be a "good link"

And the WP editor in question got blocked as a sock puppet of ...

Was it Tobias Conradi under another account?

And it is so easy to find the "good link", but tz mailing list Tobias
Conradi "succeeds in confusing almost everybody".

Very powerful he seems to be to you.
