In response to the need to find a new time zone home before I'm eligible to retire in 2012, Eliot Lear and Paul Eggert have authored the draft document "IANA Procedures for Maintaining the Timezone Database" now available from the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) web site:


Comments on how the draft can be improved are welcome. Also welcome: feedback on whether the proposed approach meets the needs of folks on the time zone mailing list--the proposed approach can't and won't go forward without support from the time zone community.

The document includes electronic mail addresses for Eliot and Paul; general comments can also be sent to the time zone mailing list.
