The package tz-lookup and geo-tz are independent of each other.  As far as I know, the major difference between the two is the data source that is used.  geo-tz is released under the MIT license.
Feel free to link to the timezone tag.  Although in my opinion a lot of the packages aren't the best because they don't get updated frequently enough with changes to the timezone db.

What's a good way to do that? Currently tz-link.htm says:

<li>The <a href="https://www.npmjs.com/package/tz-lookup">tz-lookup module</a>
for <a href="https://nodejs.org/en/">Node.js</a> is in the public domain.</li>

How should the relationship between tz-lookup and geo-tz be described? Also, 
what's the license for geo-tz? It is not obvious from its web page.

In looking at <https://www.npmjs.com/browse/keyword/timezone> I see several more 
Node.js time zone packages that seem relevant. Perhaps we should link to that page?
