If you just want a list of TZIDs, then the zone.tab file is perhaps
your best bet right now.  Admittedly there's no single URL for it but
it's not hard to give directions for deriving it.

If you want to know exactly the data are derived then the zic man page
is the specification.  You can Google "zic man page" if it's too much
of a pain to unpack it from the canonical location.
