Many metazones are incomplete

Reported by: matt.johnson@… Owned by: yoshito
Component: timezone Data Locale:
Phase: rc Review:
Weeks: Data Xpath:


Regarding the supplemental/metaZones.xml file, there are many errors that are encountered within the file. In general, programs that use this file expect to be able to determine the metazone associated with a given time zone for any date and time (UTC based). But there are missing entries and gaps that create ambiguities. It would be helpful if these were resolved in the source data. A detailed list follows:

The following metazones are missing a starting "to" line:

  • Asia/Atyrau
  • Asia/Saigon

The following metazones are missing a final "from" line:

  • America/Punta_Arenas
  • Antarctica/Palmer
  • Asia/Famagusta
  • Asia/Srednekolymsk
  • Pacific/Bougainville

The following metazones are missing both a starting "to" line and a final "from" line:

  • Europe/Astrakhan
  • Europe/Saratov
  • Europe/Ulyanovsk

The following metazone has a missing gap in time, due to an apparent typo in the date:

  • Asia/Aqtobe

The following metazones have a missing gap in time, due to a line that has been commented out without any adjustment to the previous and/or following lines:

  • America/Adak
  • America/Argentina/Salta
  • America/Argentina/Tucuman
  • America/Argentina/Ushuaia
  • America/Catamarca
  • America/Cordoba
  • America/Jujuy
  • America/Mendoza
