The TZDB project is guided by RFC 6557. Section 4 allows the list to
seek an alternate TZ coordinator where "The TZ Coordinator is not
performing the function in accordance with community wishes".

The RFC instructs as follows:

   Members of the community should raise the
   issue on the TZ mailing list and attempt to reach consensus on a new
   candidate to fulfill the role of TZ Coordinator.  If rough consensus
   cannot be reached easily, the Area Directors of the IETF Applications
   Area should attempt to guide the members of the community to rough
   consensus.  The candidate that is agreed upon by the community
   through rough consensus shall be presented to the IESG for
   confirmation.  If rough consensus cannot be reached, even with
   guidance from the Applications Area Directors, the IESG shall use
   whatever means it has at its disposal to choose a candidate who in
   its best judgment will be able to fulfill the role of TZ Coordinator.

Is there consensus on the list that a change is required?
Is there a candidate willing to take on the role of TZ Coordinator?
