I now re-read the follow-up messages, using the "Next message" links.
It seems this is mostly related to proper attribution and to
translation within the comments. AFAICS it does not affect non-comment

Maybe that can be adjusted another time, so that at least zones as
required by Theory

"the world is partitioned into regions whose clocks all agree
about time stamps that occur after the somewhat-arbitrary cutoff point
of the POSIX Epoch (1970-01-01 00:00:00 UTC)."

exist. If the patch is applied and I have time, I may review
translation and attribution and email a summary.
