Package: orage
Severity: wishlist


It seems that your package contains it's own data for timezones.  I
think it's best if it would support using the timezone information
provided by system.  This would allow us to change 1 package and all
pacakges using timezone information could use that.  In Debian we have
the tzdata package for this.

The timezone information only seems to contain the current rules,
and nothing about historic or future rules.  It also seems to be
embedding a date in the name of the timezone. This causes problems
in case the rules are updated and for instance an event was created
using the old rules but by the time the event occurs the rules got
changed.  It would be better if the name of the timezone didn't contain
any date.
