Bug#474578: kdepimlibs-data: Contains timezone info

Package: kdepimlibs-data
Version: 4:4.0.2-1
Severity: wishlist


It seems that kdepimlibs-data 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.

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.
