[tz] FW: Beginner's help request

Oops, looks like I was mistaken.  Howard's library appears to be not (specifically) for Arduino, but a C++ library for Windows (and maybe other) platforms.  Maybe it will compile in the Arduino IDE, though I suspect it will be problematic, if possible at all.

And I've so far found only one TZdb mirror that keeps a current copy of the data - very disappointing.  It's a shame the whole TZdb scheme is so user-unfriendly.  Quite discouraging.

Woohoo!  I've discovered (and downloaded) an Arduino library, written by Howard E. Hinnant:

"This timezone library is a complete parser of the IANA timezone database.  It provides for an easy way to access all of the data in this database, using the types from "date.h" and <chrono>.  The IANA database also includes data on leap seconds, and this library provides utilities to compute with that information as well."

All I need to find now are established TZdb mirrors that keep their copy up-to-date, so I don't overload the master TZdb with queries.  Can anyone point me to any, please?
