Clarissa is not on the time zone mailing list, but would like to be 
added (how does one do that again?)

Hi Paul,

I do not succeed. Would you please forward the questions below to the
people with the unreachable adress
tz at elsie.nci.nih.gov.
and have me subscribed?

Thank you very much in advance


I have some questions to the Time Zone Database:

How often are there changes to the time difference information

How many countries are there with different time zones in one country?

Who provides that information? Is it a governmental institution? 

When in general are the dates for those changes? Are they regular, or 
year different? Are there any rules?

Which countries do or don't have summer or winter time?

Thanks for helping me
