I imported tzdata2020a into FreeBSD-head a couple of hours ago (soon 
after I saw Paul's release announcement).  When I went to install the 
backward links as promised, I noticed that Xin Li already made that 
change two weeks ago.


This should bring FreeBSD closer to other operating systems.

(I still have a long-standing todo item to bring tzcode into the last 
decade, and possibly even the next one.)
