Well then look it up in a dictionary.

How about just working out all your little "proposals" privately and  
posting a _patch_ to tzdata* like it is good practice?

I for one will subscribe to the announce list because I'm really getting

Thanks to everyone except Tobias and his little "fan club" for keeping the  
list low volume and friendly for a long time.
