That paper can certainly be published by the IANA TZ folks. Indeed, I was
a little surprised that Paul said that it's copyrighted. (Maybe there's an old
version out there somewhere that's covered by the Boost license.) In any
event, I've attached a version that says clearly that it's in the public domain.
I wrote that quite a while ago to help me understand what the files are saying,
and I'm not totally confident that I got everything exactly right. Perhaps an
expert -- and I'm not one -- should pour over it to make sure that all the
statements in the paper are actually true. 8-)
