We found an issue when try to update timezone  with the tzdata2016g.tar.gz - tzdata2016i.tar.gz
The problem is that VERSION in the Makefile is not correct, the correct value should match with tz version i.e. 2016i not unknown.

# Version number for the distribution, overridden in the 'tarballs' rule below.
VERSION=    unknown

The workaround has been mention in, http://stackoverflow.com/questions/39832866/tzupdater-failing-with-tzdata2016g-release
*        Update Makefile of http://www.iana.org/time-zones/repository/releases/tzdata2016g.tar.gz: Original value of VERSION variable is unknown and you need to update it to 2016g.
*        Regenerate tzdata2016g.tar.gz.sha512 file

So far we need to apply the workaround on each release.
It would be great if you can correct the version in next release?
