pike.git/lib/modules/Calendar.pmod/tzdata/NEWS:1:   News for the tz database    + Release 2018i - 2018-12-30 11:05:43 -0800 +  +  Briefly: +  São Tomé and Príncipe switches from +01 to +00 on 2019-01-01. +  +  Changes to future timestamps +  +  Due to a change in government, São Tomé and Príncipe switches back +  from +01 to +00 on 2019-01-01 at 02:00. (Thanks to Vadim +  Nasardinov and Michael Deckers.) +  +  + Release 2018h - 2018-12-23 17:59:32 -0800 +  +  Briefly: +  Qyzylorda, Kazakhstan moved from +06 to +05 on 2018-12-21. +  New zone Asia/Qostanay because Qostanay, Kazakhstan didn't move. +  Metlakatla, Alaska observes PST this winter only. +  Guess Morocco will continue to adjust clocks around Ramadan. +  Add predictions for Iran from 2038 through 2090. +  +  Changes to future timestamps +  +  Guess that Morocco will continue to fall back just before and +  spring forward just after Ramadan, the practice since 2012. +  (Thanks to Maamar Abdelkader.) This means Morocco will observe +  negative DST during Ramadan in main and vanguard formats, and in +  rearguard format it stays in the +00 timezone and observes +  ordinary DST in all months other than Ramadan. As before, extend +  this guesswork to the year 2037. As a consequence, Morocco is +  scheduled to observe three DST transitions in some Gregorian years +  (e.g., 2033) due to the mismatch between the Gregorian and Islamic +  calendars. +  +  The table of exact transitions for Iranian DST has been extended. +  It formerly cut off before the year 2038 in a nod to 32-bit time_t. +  It now cuts off before 2091 as there is doubt about how the Persian +  calendar will treat 2091. This change predicts DST transitions in +  2038-9, 2042-3, and 2046-7 to occur one day later than previously +  predicted. As before, post-cutoff transitions are approximated. +  +  Changes to past and future timestamps +  +  Qyzylorda (aka Kyzylorda) oblast in Kazakhstan moved from +06 to +  +05 on 2018-12-21. This is a zone split as Qostanay (aka +  Kostanay) did not switch, so create a zone Asia/Qostanay. +  +  Metlakatla moved from Alaska to Pacific standard time on 2018-11-04. +  It did not change clocks that day and remains on -08 this winter. +  (Thanks to Ryan Stanley.) It will revert to the usual Alaska +  rules next spring, so this change affects only timestamps +  from 2018-11-04 through 2019-03-10. +  +  Change to past timestamps +  +  Kwajalein's 1993-08-20 transition from -12 to +12 was at 24:00, +  not 00:00. I transcribed the time incorrectly from Shanks. +  (Thanks to Phake Nick.) +  +  Nauru's 1979 transition was on 02-10 at 02:00, not 05-01 at 00:00. +  (Thanks to Phake Nick.) +  +  Guam observed DST irregularly from 1959 through 1977. +  (Thanks to Phake Nick.) +  +  Hong Kong observed DST in 1941 starting 06-15 (not 04-01), then on +  10-01 changed standard time to +08:30 (not +08). Its transition +  back to +08 after WWII was on 1945-09-15, not the previous day. +  Its 1904-10-30 change took effect at 01:00 +08 (not 00:00 LMT). +  (Thanks to Phake Nick, Steve Allen, and Joseph Myers.) Also, +  its 1952 fallback was on 11-02 (not 10-25). +  +  This release contains many changes to timestamps before 1946 due +  to Japanese possession or occupation of Pacific/Chuuk, +  Pacific/Guam, Pacific/Kosrae, Pacific/Kwajalein, Pacific/Majuro, +  Pacific/Nauru, Pacific/Palau, and Pacific/Pohnpei. +  (Thanks to Phake Nick.) +  +  Assume that the Spanish East Indies was like the Philippines and +  observed American time until the end of 1844. This affects +  Pacific/Chuuk, Pacific/Kosrae, Pacific/Palau, and Pacific/Pohnpei. +  +  Changes to past tm_isdst flags +  +  For the recent Morocco change, the tm_isdst flag should be 1 from +  2018-10-27 00:00 to 2018-10-28 03:00. (Thanks to Michael Deckers.) +  Give a URL to the official decree.

(Reported by Daniel Fischer.) Also, the zic workaround +  for QTBUG-53071 now also works for TZif files with leap seconds. +  +  The translator to rearguard format now rewrites the line +  "Rule Japan 1948 1951 - Sep Sat>=8 25:00 0 S" to +  "Rule Japan 1948 1951 - Sep Sun>=9 1:00 0 S". +  This caters to zic before 2007 and to Oracle TZUpdater 2.2.0 +  and earlier. (Reported by Christos Zoulas.) +  +  Changes to past time zone abbreviations +  +  Change HDT to HWT/HPT for WWII-era abbreviations in Hawaii. +  This reverts to 2011h, as the abbreviation change in 2011i was +  likely inadvertent. +  +  Changes to documentation +  +  tzfile.5 has new sections on interoperability issues. +  +  + Release 2018f - 2018-10-18 00:14:18 -0700 +  +  Briefly: +  Volgograd moves from +03 to +04 on 2018-10-28. +  Fiji ends DST 2019-01-13, not 2019-01-20. +  Most of Chile changes DST dates, effective 2019-04-06. +  +  Changes to future timestamps +  +  Volgograd moves from +03 to +04 on 2018-10-28 at 02:00. +  (Thanks to Alexander Fetisov and Stepan Golosunov.) +  +  Fiji ends DST 2019-01-13 instead of the 2019-01-20 previously +  predicted. (Thanks to Raymond Kumar.) Adjust future predictions +  accordingly. +  +  Most of Chile will end DST on the first Saturday in April at 24:00 mainland +  time, and resume DST on the first Saturday in September at 24:00 mainland +  time. The changes are effective from 2019-04-06, and do not affect the +  Magallanes region modeled by America/Punta_Arenas. (Thanks to Juan Correa +  and Tim Parenti.) Adjust future predictions accordingly. +  +  Changes to past timestamps +  +  The 2018-05-05 North Korea 30-minute time zone change took place +  at 23:30 the previous day, not at 00:00 that day. +  +  China's 1988 spring-forward transition was on April 17, not +  April 10. Its DST transitions in 1986/91 were at 02:00, not 00:00. +  (Thanks to P Chan.) +  +  Fix several issues for Macau before 1992. Macau's pre-1904 LMT +  was off by 10 s. Macau switched to +08 in 1904 not 1912, and +  temporarily switched to +09/+10 during World War II. Macau +  observed DST in 1942/79, not 1961/80, and there were several +  errors for transition times and dates. (Thanks to P Chan.) +  +  The 1948-1951 fallback transitions in Japan were at 25:00 on +  September's second Saturday, not at 24:00.

(Thanks to Paul Goyette.) +  +  Changes to code +  +  zic now always generates TZif files where time type 0 is used for +  timestamps before the first transition. This simplifies the +  reading of TZif files and should not affect behavior of existing +  TZif readers because the same set of time types is used; only +  their internal indexes may have changed. This affects only the +  legacy zones EST5EDT, CST6CDT, MST7MDT, PST8PDT, CET, MET, and +  EET, which previously used nonzero types for these timestamps. +  +  Because of the type 0 change, zic no longer outputs a dummy +  transition at time -2**59 (before the Big Bang), as clients should +  no longer need this to handle historical timestamps correctly. +  This reverts a change introduced in 2013d and shrinks most TZif +  files by a few bytes. +  +  zic now supports negative time-of-day in Rule and Leap lines, e.g., +  "Rule X min max - Apr lastSun -6:00 1:00 -" means the transition +  occurs at 18:00 on the Saturday before the last Sunday in April. +  This behavior was documented in 2018a but the code did not +  entirely match the documentation. +  +  localtime.c no longer requires at least one time type in TZif +  files that lack transitions or have a POSIX-style TZ string. This +  future-proofs the code against possible future extensions to the +  format that would allow TZif files with POSIX-style TZ strings and +  without transitions or time types. +  +  A read-access subscript error in localtime.c has been fixed. +  It could occur only in TZif files with timecnt == 0, something that +  does not happen in practice now but could happen in future versions. +  +  localtime.c no longer ignores TZif POSIX-style TZ strings that +  specify only standard time. Instead, these TZ strings now +  override the default time type for timestamps after the last +  transition (or for all timestamps if there are no transitions), +  just as DST strings specifying DST have always done. +  +  leapseconds.awk now outputs "#updated" and "#expires" comments, +  and supports leap seconds at the ends of months other than June +  and December. (Inspired by suggestions from Chris Woodbury.) +  +  Changes to documentation +  +  New restrictions: A Rule name must start with a character that +  is neither an ASCII digit nor "-" nor "+", and an unquoted name +  should not use characters in the set "!$%&'()*,/:;<=>?@[\]^`{|}~". +  The latter restriction makes room for future extensions (a +  possibility noted by Tom Lane). +  +  tzfile.5 now documents what time types apply before the first and +  after the last transition, if any. +  +  Documentation now uses the spelling "timezone" for a TZ setting +  that determines timestamp history, and "time zone" for a +  geographic region currently sharing the same standard time. +  +  The name "TZif" is now used for the tz binary data format. +  +  tz-link.htm now mentions the A0 TimeZone Migration utilities. +  (Thanks to Aldrin Martoq for the link.) +  +  Changes to build procedure +  +  New 'make' target 'rearguard_tarballs' to build the rearguard +  tarball only. This is a convenience on platforms that lack lzip +  if you want to build the rearguard tarball. (Problem reported by +  Deborah Goldsmith.) +  +  tzdata.zi is now more stable from release to release. (Problem +  noted by Tom Lane.) It is also a bit shorter. +  +  tzdata.zi now can contain comment lines documenting configuration +  information, such as which data format was selected, which input +  files were used, and how leap seconds are treated. (Problems +  noted by Lester Caine and Brian Inglis.) If the Makefile defaults +  are used these comment lines are absent, for backward +  compatibility. A redistributor intending to alter its copy of the +  files should also append "-LABEL" to the 'version' file's first +  line, where "LABEL" identifies the redistributor's change. +  +    Release 2018e - 2018-05-01 23:42:51 -0700       Briefly:       North Korea switches back to +09 on 2018-05-05.    The main format uses negative DST again, for Ireland etc.    'make tarballs' now also builds a rearguard tarball.    New 's' and 'd' suffixes in SAVE columns of Rule and Zone lines.    -  Changes to past and future time stamps +  Changes to past and future timestamps       North Korea switches back from +0830 to +09 on 2018-05-05.    (Thanks to Kang Seonghoon, Arthur David Olson, Seo Sanghyeon,    and Tim Parenti.)       Bring back the negative-DST changes of 2018a, except be more    compatible with data parsers that do not support negative DST. -  Also, this now affects historical time stamps in Namibia and the +  Also, this now affects historical timestamps in Namibia and the    former Czechoslovakia, not just Ireland. The main format now uses -  negative DST to model time stamps in Europe/Dublin (from 1971 on), +  negative DST to model timestamps in Europe/Dublin (from 1971 on),    Europe/Prague (1946/7), and Africa/Windhoek (1994/2017). This    does not affect UT offsets, only time zone abbreviations and the    tm_isdst flag. Also, this does not affect rearguard or vanguard    formats; effectively the main format now uses vanguard instead of    rearguard format. Data parsers that do not support negative DST    can still use data from the rearguard tarball described below.       Changes to build procedure       The command 'make tarballs' now also builds the tarball
pike.git/lib/modules/Calendar.pmod/tzdata/NEWS:37:    Changes to data format and to code       The SAVE column of Rule and Zone lines can now have an 's' or 'd'    suffix, which specifies whether the adjusted time is standard time    or daylight saving time. If no suffix is given, daylight saving    time is used if and only if the SAVE column is nonzero; this is    the longstanding behavior. Although this new feature is not used    in tzdata, it could be used to specify the legal time in Namibia    1994-2017, as opposed to the popular time (see below).    -  Changes to past time stamps +  Changes to past timestamps       From 1994 through 2017 Namibia observed DST in winter, not summer.    That is, it used negative DST, as Ireland still does. This change    does not affect UTC offsets; it affects only the tm_isdst flag and    the abbreviation used during summer, which is now CAT, not WAST.    Although (as noted by Michael Deckers) summer and winter time were    both simply called "standard time" in Namibian law, in common    practice winter time was considered to be DST (as noted by Stephen    Colebourne). The full effect of this change is only in vanguard -  format; in rearguard and main format, the tm_isdst flag is still +  and main format; in rearguard format, the tm_isdst flag is still    zero in winter and nonzero in summer.       In 1946/7 Czechoslovakia also observed negative DST in winter. -  The full effect of this change is only in vanguard format; in -  rearguard and main formats, it is modeled as plain GMT without +  The full effect of this change is only in vanguard and main +  formats; in rearguard format, it is modeled as plain GMT without    daylight saving. Also, the dates of some 1944/5 DST transitions    in Czechoslovakia have been changed.         Release 2018d - 2018-03-22 07:05:46 -0700       Briefly:       Palestine starts DST a week earlier in 2018.    Add support for vanguard and rearguard data consumers.    Add subsecond precision to source data format, though not to data.    -  Changes to future time stamps +  Changes to future timestamps       In 2018, Palestine starts DST on March 24, not March 31.    Adjust future predictions accordingly. (Thanks to Sharef Mustafa.)    -  Changes to past and future time stamps +  Changes to past and future timestamps       Casey Station in Antarctica changed from +11 to +08 on 2018-03-11    at 04:00. (Thanks to Steffen Thorsen.)    -  Changes to past time stamps +  Changes to past timestamps       Historical transitions for Uruguay, represented by    America/Montevideo, have been updated per official legal documents,    replacing previous data mainly originating from the inventions of    Shanks & Pottenger. This has resulted in adjustments ranging from    30 to 90 minutes in either direction over at least two dozen    distinct periods ranging from one day to several years in length.    A mere handful of pre-1991 transitions are unaffected; data since    then has come from more reliable contemporaneous reporting. These    changes affect various timestamps in 1920-1923, 1936, 1939,
pike.git/lib/modules/Calendar.pmod/tzdata/NEWS:217:    releases 2018a and 2018b, which implemented Irish time by using    negative SAVE values in the Eire rules of the 'europe' file.    Although negative SAVE values have been part of tzcode for many    years and are supported by many platforms, they were not    documented before 2018a and ICU and OpenJDK do not currently    support them. A mechanism to export data to platforms lacking    support for negative DST is planned to be developed before the    change is reapplied. (Problems reported by Deborah Goldsmith and    Stephen Colebourne.)    -  Changes to past time stamps +  Changes to past timestamps       Japanese DST transitions (1948-1951) were Sundays at 00:00, not    Saturdays or Sundays at 02:00. (Thanks to Takayuki Nikai.)       Changes to build procedure       The build procedure now works around mawk 1.3.3's lack of support    for character class expressions. (Problem reported by Ohyama.)      
pike.git/lib/modules/Calendar.pmod/tzdata/NEWS:249:      Release 2018a - 2018-01-12 22:29:21 -0800       Briefly:    São Tomé and Príncipe switched from +00 to +01.    Brazil's DST will now start on November's first Sunday.    Ireland's standard time is now in the summer, not the winter.    Use Debian-style installation locations, instead of 4.3BSD-style.    New zic option -t.    -  Changes to past and future time stamps +  Changes to past and future timestamps       São Tomé and Príncipe switched from +00 to +01 on 2018-01-01 at    01:00. (Thanks to Steffen Thorsen and Michael Deckers.)    -  Changes to future time stamps +  Changes to future timestamps       Starting in 2018 southern Brazil will begin DST on November's    first Sunday instead of October's third Sunday. (Thanks to    Steffen Thorsen.)    -  Changes to past time stamps +  Changes to past timestamps       A discrepancy of 4 s in timestamps before 1931 in South Sudan has    been corrected. The 'backzone' and 'zone.tab' files did not agree    with the 'africa' and 'zone1970.tab' files. (Problem reported by    Michael Deckers.)       The abbreviation invented for Bolivia Summer Time (1931-2) is now    BST instead of BOST, to be more consistent with the convention    used for Latvian Summer Time (1918-9) and for British Summer Time.   
pike.git/lib/modules/Calendar.pmod/tzdata/NEWS:348:    Briefly:    Northern Cyprus switches from +03 to +02/+03 on 2017-10-29.    Fiji ends DST 2018-01-14, not 2018-01-21.    Namibia switches from +01/+02 to +02 on 2018-04-01.    Sudan switches from +03 to +02 on 2017-11-01.    Tonga likely switches from +13/+14 to +13 on 2017-11-05.    Turks & Caicos switches from -04 to -05/-04 on 2018-11-04.    A new file tzdata.zi now holds a small text copy of all data.    The zic input format has been regularized slightly.    -  Changes to future time stamps +  Changes to future timestamps       Northern Cyprus has decided to resume EU rules starting    2017-10-29, thus reinstituting winter time.       Fiji ends DST 2018-01-14 instead of the 2018-01-21 previously    predicted. (Thanks to Dominic Fok.) Adjust future predictions    accordingly.       Namibia will switch from +01 with DST to +02 all year on    2017-09-03 at 02:00. This affects UT offsets starting 2018-04-01
pike.git/lib/modules/Calendar.pmod/tzdata/NEWS:374:       Tonga has likely ended its experiment with DST, and will not    adjust its clocks on 2017-11-05. Although Tonga has not announced    whether it will continue to observe DST, the IATA is assuming that    it will not. (Thanks to David Wade.)       Turks & Caicos will switch from -04 all year to -05 with US DST on    2018-03-11 at 03:00. This affects UT offsets starting 2018-11-04    at 02:00. (Thanks to Steffen Thorsen.)    -  Changes to past time stamps +  Changes to past timestamps       Namibia switched from +02 to +01 on 1994-03-21, not 1994-04-03.    (Thanks to Arthur David Olson.)       Detroit did not observe DST in 1967.       Use railway time for Asia/Kolkata before 1941, by switching to    Madras local time (UT +052110) in 1870, then to IST (UT +0530) in    1906. Also, treat 1941-2's +0630 as DST, like 1942-5.   
pike.git/lib/modules/Calendar.pmod/tzdata/NEWS:504:    tz-link.htm now covers how to apply tzdata changes to clients.    (Thanks to Jorge Fábregas for the AIX link.) It also mentions MySQL.       The leap-seconds.list URL has been updated to something that is    more reliable for tzdb. (Thanks to Tim Parenti and Brian Inglis.)      Release 2017b - 2017-03-17 07:30:38 -0700       Briefly: Haiti has resumed DST.    -  Changes to past and future time stamps +  Changes to past and future timestamps       Haiti resumed observance of DST in 2017. (Thanks to Steffen Thorsen.)    -  Changes to past time stamps +  Changes to past timestamps       Liberia changed from -004430 to +00 on 1972-01-07, not 1972-05-01.       Use "MMT" to abbreviate Liberia's time zone before 1972, as "-004430"    is one byte over the POSIX limit. (Problem reported by Derick Rethans.)       Changes to code       The reference localtime implementation now falls back on the    current US daylight-saving transition rules rather than the    1987-2006 rules.

(Thanks to Ganbold Tsagaankhuu.)       Chile's Region of Magallanes moves from -04/-03 to -03 year-round.    Its clocks diverge from America/Santiago starting 2017-05-13 at    23:00, hiving off a new zone America/Punta_Arenas. Although the    Chilean government says this change expires in May 2019, for now    assume it's permanent. (Thanks to Juan Correa and Deborah    Goldsmith.) This also affects Antarctica/Palmer.    -  Changes to past time stamps +  Changes to past timestamps    -  Fix many entries for historical time stamps for Europe/Madrid +  Fix many entries for historical timestamps for Europe/Madrid    before 1979, to agree with tables compiled by Pere Planesas of the    National Astronomical Observatory of Spain. As a side effect, -  this changes some time stamps for Africa/Ceuta before 1929, which +  this changes some timestamps for Africa/Ceuta before 1929, which    are probably guesswork anyway. (Thanks to Steve Allen and    Pierpaolo Bernardi for the heads-ups, and to Michael Deckers for    correcting the 1901 transition.)       Ecuador observed DST from 1992-11-28 to 1993-02-05.    (Thanks to Alois Treindl.)       Asia/Atyrau and Asia/Oral were at +03 (not +04) before 1930-06-21.    (Thanks to Stepan Golosunov.)   
pike.git/lib/modules/Calendar.pmod/tzdata/NEWS:638:    The 'Theory' file now better documents choice of historical time    zone abbreviations. (Problems reported by Michael Deckers.)       tz-link.htm now covers leap smearing, which is popular in clouds.         Release 2016j - 2016-11-22 23:17:13 -0800       Briefly: Saratov, Russia moves from +03 to +04 on 2016-12-04.    -  Changes to future time stamps +  Changes to future timestamps       Saratov, Russia switches from +03 to +04 on 2016-12-04 at 02:00.    This hives off a new zone Europe/Saratov from Europe/Volgograd.    (Thanks to Yuri Konotopov and Stepan Golosunov.)    -  Changes to past time stamps +  Changes to past timestamps       The new zone Asia/Atyrau for Atyraū Region, Kazakhstan, is like    Asia/Aqtau except it switched from +05/+06 to +04/+05 in spring    1999, not fall 1994. (Thanks to Stepan Golosunov.)       Changes to past time zone abbreviations       Asia/Gaza and Asia/Hebron now use "EEST", not "EET", to denote    summer time before 1948. The old use of "EET" was a typo.   
pike.git/lib/modules/Calendar.pmod/tzdata/NEWS:680:       iso3166.tab now accents "Curaçao", and commentary now mentions    the names "Cabo Verde" and "Czechia". (Thanks to Jiří Boháč.)         Release 2016i - 2016-11-01 23:19:52 -0700       Briefly: Cyprus split into two time zones on 2016-10-30, and Tonga    reintroduces DST on 2016-11-06.    -  Changes to future time stamps +  Changes to future timestamps       Pacific/Tongatapu begins DST on 2016-11-06 at 02:00, ending on    2017-01-15 at 03:00. Assume future observances in Tonga will be    from the first Sunday in November through the third Sunday in    January, like Fiji. (Thanks to Pulu ʻAnau.) Switch to numeric    time zone abbreviations for this zone.    -  Changes to past and future time stamps +  Changes to past and future timestamps       Northern Cyprus is now +03 year round, causing a split in Cyprus    time zones starting 2016-10-30 at 04:00.

pike.git/lib/modules/Calendar.pmod/tzdata/NEWS:1675:    these changes affect UT offsets in pre-1970 timestamps only.    Their old contents have been moved to the 'backzone' file.    The affected zones are: Africa/Bangui, Africa/Brazzaville,    Africa/Douala, Africa/Kinshasa, Africa/Libreville, Africa/Luanda,    Africa/Malabo, Africa/Niamey, and Africa/Porto-Novo.       Changes affecting code       Unless NETBSD_INSPIRED is defined to 0, the tz library now    supplies functions for creating and using objects that represent -  time zones. The new functions are tzalloc, tzfree, localtime_rz, +  timezones. The new functions are tzalloc, tzfree, localtime_rz,    mktime_z, and (if STD_INSPIRED is also defined) posix2time_z and    time2posix_z. They are intended for performance: for example,    localtime_rz (unlike localtime_r) is trivially thread-safe without    locking. (Thanks to Christos Zoulas for proposing NetBSD-inspired    functions, and to Alan Barrett and Jonathan Lennox for helping to    debug the change.)       zdump now builds with the tz library unless USE_LTZ is defined to 0,    This lets zdump use tz features even if the system library lacks them.    To build zdump with the system library, use 'make CFLAGS=-DUSE_LTZ=0    TZDOBJS=zdump.o CHECK_TIME_T_ALTERNATIVES='.       zdump now uses localtime_rz if available, as it's significantly faster, -  and it can help zdump better diagnose invalid time zone names. +  and it can help zdump better diagnose invalid timezone names.    Define HAVE_LOCALTIME_RZ to 0 to suppress this. HAVE_LOCALTIME_RZ    defaults to 1 if NETBSD_INSPIRED && USE_LTZ. When localtime_rz is    not available, zdump now uses localtime_r and tzset if available,    as this is a bit cleaner and faster than plain localtime. Compile    with -DHAVE_LOCALTIME_R=0 and/or -DHAVE_TZSET=0 if your system    lacks these two functions.       If THREAD_SAFE is defined to 1, the tz library is now thread-safe.    Although not needed for tz's own applications, which are single-threaded,    this supports POSIX better if the tz library is used in multithreaded apps.       Some crashes have been fixed when zdump or the tz library is given    invalid or outlandish input.       The tz library no longer mishandles leap seconds on platforms with -  unsigned time_t in time zones that lack ordinary transitions after 1970. +  unsigned time_t in timezones that lack ordinary transitions after 1970.       The tz code now attempts to infer TM_GMTOFF and TM_ZONE if not    already defined, to make it easier to configure on common platforms.    Define NO_TM_GMTOFF and NO_TM_ZONE to suppress this.       Unless the new macro UNINIT_TRAP is defined to 1, the tz code now    assumes that reading uninitialized memory yields garbage values    but does not cause other problems such as traps.       If TM_GMTOFF is defined and UNINIT_TRAP is 0, mktime is now
