            Bug ID: 29908
           Summary: [FO31] Olson timezone reference
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Candidate Recommendation
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: Functions and Operators 3.1
          Assignee: mike@saxonica.com
          Reporter: abel.braaksma@xs4all.nl
        QA Contact: public-qt-comments@w3.org
  Target Milestone: ---

The Olson timezone link points to something odd, which hardly seems
authoritative (anymore):  http://www.twinsun.com/tz/tz-link.htm. 

Since 2011, the TZ database is maintained by IANA, which took it over after a
lawsuit and some other issues: http://www.iana.org/time-zones.

Also, the term "Olson timezone" seems to have been changed: "IANA Timezone
Database" (source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tz_database), which seems more
appropriate than using the original founder's name.


Part of ACTION A-654-11.
