It's very important to keep tzdata updated, but we failed to do so the last few
months. I am already looking at the updates (I have tzdata ready, still working
on libtimedate-timezone-perl) and will upload them ASAP (hopefully later today).

I will also keep an eye on them so we don't miss any updates in the future.
