10# need now for the entries that are not on UTC are for ships at sea
11# that cannot use POSIX TZ settings.

17# The following link uses older naming conventions,
18# but it belongs here, not in the file `backward',
19# as functions like gmtime load the "GMT" file to handle leap seconds properly.
20# We want this to work even on installations that omit the other older names.

31# We use POSIX-style signs in the Zone names and the output abbreviations,
32# even though this is the opposite of what many people expect.
33# POSIX has positive signs west of Greenwich, but many people expect
34# positive signs east of Greenwich. For example, TZ='Etc/GMT+4' uses
35# the abbreviation "GMT+4" and corresponds to 4 hours behind UTC
36# (i.e. west of Greenwich) even though many people would expect it to
37# mean 4 hours ahead of UTC (i.e. east of Greenwich).
38#
39# In the draft 5 of POSIX 1003.1-200x, the angle bracket notation
40# (which is not yet supported by the tz code) allows for
41# TZ='<GMT-4>+4'; if you want time zone abbreviations conforming to
42# ISO 8601 you can use TZ='<-0400>+4'. Thus the commonly-expected
43# offset is kept within the angle bracket (and is used for display)
44# while the POSIX sign is kept outside the angle bracket (and is used
45# for calculation).
46#
47# Do not use a TZ setting like TZ='GMT+4', which is four hours behind
48# GMT but uses the completely misleading abbreviation "GMT".

50# Earlier incarnations of this package were not POSIX-compliant,
51# and had lines such as
52# Zone GMT-12 -12 - GMT-1200
53# We did not want things to change quietly if someone accustomed to the old
54# way does a
55# zic -l GMT-12
56# so we moved the names into the Etc subdirectory.
