I'm forwarding this message from Michele Teifke, who is not on the time
zone mailing list.
Those of you who are on the time zone mailing list should direct replies

Michele: what you've downloaded is the source code for the time zone
compiler and source files; you get to run the source files through the
compiler to create the binary files that actually get used by operating
systems. Note that the "backward" source file is what's processed to
create binary files such as "US/Central".

Mailing list folks: this introduces a more general question--is there
any open-to-the-public collection of time zone binary files?

Subject: Looking for US timezone data files

I downloaded the timezone data files from the link you gave on this
But the set of files is incomplete, it does not contain the US
subdirectory of data files. i.e.: US/Pacific, US/Central.
Could you tell me if there is a place I can download a complete list of
these files.
thanks, Michele
