I agree on that. But it would be nice to have an official "blessed"
location where the development happens so we get a full authoritative
history of the changes. But it seems as github.com/eggert/tz/ is the
most "official" repository at the moment, and based on Paul's history
with the project, it seems as the correct place to have it for now. If
there should be some changes in that opinion (GitHub getting difficult
or something), it's easy to push it somewhere else. I was just wondering
if that repo is recognised as the official place where all the good
stuff happens, and it looks like that to me.
