Arthur David Olson posted a message about a new home for time zone 
stuff in August 2009 [1].  The time zone stuff used to be called the 
Olson database.  Robert Elz provided a temporary home for the Olson 
database in October 2011 [2].  Paul Eggert was suggested as TZ 
coordinator in March 2012 [3].

The mailing list was supposed to be be used just as it has been: to 
learn of, discuss, and confirm TZ definition changes, as well as to 
serve as an announcement list for new versions of the database.  In 
my humble opinion it is up to the TZ coordinator to determine what to 
do about the details of the Olson database.
