The wording was less direct (and without the "equity" buzzword) earlier 
this year, when the request to add a Kosovo entry was made. It was that 
request that inspired the cleanup proposal I made in May.

Although the equity issue has been present for years in tzdb, it wasn't 
considered to be a significant problem until Kosovo came up. Regardless 
of Kosovo, it's something I should have fixed long ago - as I wrote 
earlier I am both busy and forgetful and simply dropped the ball on a 
task that I had originally intended to finish way back when.
