Have you told them about our repository of timezone data in XML?

Would you please? If not you, is anybody else watching both lists?


Hmm... I think I'll just cross-post and hope for the best...

I must say that seems like a strange thing to do, just when the
various tools are starting to get it right. The spec for VTIMEZONE
seems like a pretty good match for the widely-deployed Olsen
timezone database. It's maybe slightly hairier than it
needs to be, in theory; I can imagine pruning the allowed
RRULE constructs a bit. But in practice, it seems to work
