The time zone information comes directly from tzdata
Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2005-02-20 16:52:50 EST
The timezone names are not necessarily capital names.  Furthermore, we make no
modifications to the upstream timezone data and there are no exceptions to this.
So if you want something changed in timezone data, you better find strong
arguments and argue about it with upstream, which is tz@elsie.nci.nih.gov
mailing list.
