Package: libc6
Version: 2.3.1-11
Severity: minor

/usr/share/zoneinfo/zone.tab seems to only include timezones of the
form "foo/bar", excluding single component names like "NZ", "Japan",
"UTC", etc.

I note the checktab.awk script in the glibc source seems to only
check/cope with such names too:
 if (tz && tz ~ /\//) { ... zoneSeen[tz] = 1 }

perhaps that is why this omission has gone unnoticed. (glibc
build/test doesn't seem to actually run checktab.awk either..)

There's no reason to keep this report as open because the valid
request has not been reported.  I close it.
