I have tried it (I have also set it to print a real package name) and I 

$ sudo zdump --version
zdump (timezone; Base:System) 2020a

(Base:System is the repository in which I locally build the package.)

I personally dislike it, after reading the discussion I would stay with 
simple tzcode (the previous result).

I will set BUGEMAIL to opensuse-support at opensuse.org, thanks.

Hayo, are you satisfied with this solution?
