This is our initial effort at "officially" documenting the time zone 
data binary format and defining a MIME type for it so it can be used 
with the Time Zone Distribution Service.

    This document defines the Time Zone Information File Format for
    representing and exchanging time zone information, independent of any
    particular service or protocol.  A MIME media type for this format is
    also defined.

Open Issues

    o  Need to review definitions of terms.

    o  Should we require TZDIST servers to always return a particular
       format (2 or 3) with/without leap seconds?  Or should we allow the
       client to choose what they want (via parameters on the MIME type)?

    o  Are we referencing the correct and most current versions of the
       relevant POSIX specs?

    o  Is the MIME registration complete and correct (e.g. any security
       or privacy considerations)?


Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission
until the htmlized version and diff are available at tools.ietf.org.
