No public domain notices appear in the *.?.txt source files or in the generated 
man pages.

It may be useful to specify that the document, data, program, and source files 
for all components are in the public domain in the LICEN[CS]E sections.

It would also be useful if you also added SPDX licence comments like man-pages 
after either your line(s) or theirs, such as:

.\" SPDX-License-Identifier: LicenseRef-IANA-TZ-Public-Domain	[suggested]
.\" SPDX-FileCopyrightText: project authors			[suggested]

and also in the generated output?, as it may save downstreams doing so as 
licensing requirements are enforced by packaging tools and repos.

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