Hi Paul,

Is there any estimation when the new tzdata package containing the leap second information will be available?
We need to include it in our SW in the upcoming weeks.

from us. (We don't copy the IERS files due to unresolved copyright issues.)

Thanks for the pointer. I modifed your suggested description somewhat
and installed the attached patch into the experimental version on
GitHub; please let us know if it has any problems.
