[tz] 2016g tagged but not released

FYI, “make tarballs” now fails on macOS:

		tar `if tar --numeric-owner --owner=0 --group=0 --mode=go+u,go-w --sort=name --version >/dev/null 2>&1; then echo --numeric-owner --owner=0 --group=0 --mode=go+u,go-w --sort=name; else :; fi` -cf - tzdb-2016g | lzip -9 > tzdb-2016g.tar.lz
/bin/sh: lzip: command not found
make[1]: *** [tzdb-2016g.tar.lz] Error 127
make: *** [tarballs] Error 2

FWIW, it finishes the legacy formats first.

Can we please have a separate target that builds just the legacy tarballs? Yes, I can build the tzdata and tzcode tarball targets separately, but a combo target would be nice.

Unfortunately ICANN is backlogged and so the 2016g tarballs have not yet been published on the iana.org website. I plan to ping them in a few days if they are not up by then. In the meantime you can get a copy of 2016g as an attachment to my earlier email to the tz list, archived here:
