file "africa" reports that:
# From Paul Eggert <eggert at twinsun.com> (1993-11-18):
# In 1972 Liberia was the last country to switch
# from a UTC offset that was not a multiple of 15 minutes.
However, file "australasia" gives:
Zone Pacific/Kiritimati -10:29:20 - LMT 1901
-10:40 - LINT 1979 Oct # Line Is Time
-10:00 - LINT 1995
14:00 - LINT
Unless I missed something, -10:40 isn't a multiple of
15 minutes, and 1979 is more recent than 1972 (the
Republic of Kiribati is a country).
A relatively minor point...
