First of all my compliments for maintaining this excellent database.

I have one remark regarding the former Netherlands Antilles. As of October
2010 Curacao, Aruba and Sint Maarten are independent countries within the
Kingdom of the Netherlands. This information is available at

In the current and of the tzdata2011e, Curacao is still
part of the Netherlands Antilles (AN). I know it doesn’t change anything for
the timezone “america/curacao” but it would be nice to link this timezone to
the correct countryname.

Is there any way to change this in the zone and iso3166 files?

Thanks again for the great work you’re doing.

Kind Regards,

Patrick Fermont
