Jakarta is Indonesia West Time Not Central Time

Hello tzdata developers,

https://launchpad.net/bugs/365215 reported that tzdata currently puts
Jakarta into WIT (Indonesia Central Time), but it actually belongs
into WIB (Indonesia West Time).

It seems that
http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/timezone.html?n=108 also gets
this wrong (perhaps it's using tzdata?)

The official website is currently down, however this url still accessible
from google cache:*.go.id&cd=5&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=id&client=firefox-a

but the real url is:

The document states that GMT +7 (jakarta time) is Waktu Indonesia Barat
(WIB), GMT +8 is Waktu Indonesia Tengah (WITA), and GMT +9 is Waktu
Indonesia Timur (WIT).

Thank you!
