Dear Paul Eggert,

I use software which sources your data in github for time zones.

The Canary Islands, located off the coast of Morocco, belong to Spain but
have a different time zone. It's causing me problems because it seems your
files do not take account of this.

Would you kindly amend your files accordingly, please, so that my software
programmer can use an updated file, so in turn I can use his software?

Please see below for references.

Many thanks indeed, so grateful.

Yours sincerely,

Hello Sylvie,

1) This is not so important.

2) I use more (seems) relevant source: https://github.com/eggert/tz Paul
Eggert tz-bounces at iana.org
also https://github.com/eggert/tz/blob/master/europe line 2922
Please talk with him.

Dear Anatoly,

I hope you are well. I write for two items:

- I have retired from my job in Geneva (Switzerland), sold my house in
France, and I have moved to the Canary Islands, a part of Spain that is off
the coast of Morocco. So my addresses, email and telephone number need to
be changed in your records - see below.

- The Canary Islands do not use the same time as mainland Spain, so I'm
having trouble with the time changes. I tried to make a few modifications
in my Zet but I do not know enough and did not succeed. Please would make
the corrections in the time zone files and make them available? For
reference see:

Thank you very much for correcting this.

Kind regards,
