in my application, I used Antarctica/McMurdo in some test case.
In version 2013d, file antarctica contained an entry
# McMurdo, Ross Island, since 1955-12
# Zone NAME GMTOFF RULES FORMAT [UNTIL]
Zone Antarctica/McMurdo 0 - zzz 1956
12:00 NZAQ NZ%sT
which is gone in version 2013g. However, McMurdo is still referenced both in
australasia in a link, and in the zone.tab file:
~/tmp/tzdata$ grep McMurdo *
antarctica:# "in the US Camp (East Camp) we have been on New Zealand (McMurdo)
antarctica:# McMurdo Station, Ross Island, since 1955-12
antarctica:# as supplies for the station were coming from McMurdo Sound,
antarctica:# We use the same time as McMurdo does.
antarctica:# See 'australasia' for Antarctica/McMurdo.
australasia:Link Pacific/Auckland Antarctica/McMurdo
zone.tab:AQ -7750+16636 Antarctica/McMurdo McMurdo, South Pole,
Scott (New Zealand time)
I guess this is a inconsistency in the tzdata files...?
