[tz] tzdata2012c released

The file
is now available.

This reflects the changes circulated last week by the tz co-ordinator
(Arthur David Olson).   Just in case it isn't obvious, this is a data
only update (no code changes) tzcode2012b remains the current code version.

The executive summary of the changes:

		Summer time changes for Morocco (to start late April 2012)

		Changes for 2012 for Gaza & the West Bank (Hebron) and Syria

		Haiti following US/Canada rules for 2012 (and we're assuming,
		for now anyway, for the future).

Crypto hashes using several algorithms from NetBSD's pkgsrc digest program
are appended, you can use these to verify that you have successfully fetched
the same file that I intended to distribute (which is a tar.gz file that ado
sent me to distribute).

A few words on the logistics of all of this ... my term maintaining this
stuff ended when ado & Paul returned after the law suit was withdrawn.
For now, Arthur is the co-ordinator again, but as you have all seen on
the list, the plan is for Paul to take over soon, in accordance with Arthur's
long stated plan to retire sometime this year.

The files are still being distributed from munnari.oz.au as (as I understand
it) elsie is no longer available for this function, and arrangements to
make it convenient to use the IANA site as a distribution point will
probably not be made until after Paul has taken over.   I expect the
file will be copied to the IANA site sometime later today.
