Now Larry thinks he's Caesar - renaming the months after his company ;^>
ITYM 2nd week of October

BTW the update is still not available on the IANA site; it was attached
to message id <edb5888e-490b-db9c-403f-c2071688076c at cs.ucla.edu> from
Paul Eggert in theTime zone change in Turkey thread as a composite code
and data lzip tar, and is available from https://github.com/eggert/tz
as a zip or via git clone; the message says make tarballs will reproduce
the normal distributed packages, if your system can run make, tar, gzip,
and lzip.

Is IANA staff availability being adversely affected by secondment and
transition to ICANN subsidiary/affiliate PTI (was Post-Transition IANA,
now Public Technical Identifiers) as IANA Functions Operator (IFO) and
running the Root Zone Management System (RZMS), transferring stewardship
from US National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA)
and US Department of Commerce to ICANN/PTI, at the end of this month?

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
