According to #838781, Turkey has a significant timezone change at the
end of this month. Although both the 2016g and 2016h updates from IANA
has been in unstable and testing for a long time, these updates are
not included in stable and oldstable releases yet. Also the
tzdata-java package from the same tzdata source package is not
generated in testing, and this makes it impossible to update the
package manually from testing because of missing dependency of
tzdata-java. Could you please look into this and update the package to
stable and oldstable repos as soon as possible?
Debian's Release Team is not responsible for the oldstable distribution
currently - you will need to contact the LTS team to discuss that.
email@example.com is also not a general support list. If
you want to enquire about the status of a package in stable, contacting
the package maintainer would be the most appropriate first port of call.
tzdata 2016h has been in testing for one day and in unstable for less
than a week - that's really not "a long time". An update for stable will
be available via the stable-updates repository within the next few days
and will be announced on the debian-stable-announce list as usual.
