The following packages have been upgraded in the Cygwin distribution:

* tzcode	2023c
* tzdata	2023c

The Time Zone Database (often called tz, tzdb, or zoneinfo) contains
data that represents the history of local time for many locations around
the world, and supports conversion of UTC time to local time at those
locations to allow display of those local times. It is updated
periodically to reflect changes made by political bodies to summer
daylight saving time rules, UTC offsets, and time zone boundaries.
The tzcode package provides the tzselect, zdump, and zic utilities.

Release 2023c	2023-03-28

* This release's code and data are identical to 2023a and reverts all
  changes made in 2023b. Lebanon's spring-forward transition was
  previously scheduled for March 25/26. Then Lebanon's government
  announced that the spring-forward transition would be delayed until
  April 20. Then after the weekend reverted the change. So other than
  commentary, all changes are reverted, as that appears to be the best
  of a bad set of short-notice choices for modeling this week's daylight
  saving chaos in Lebanon.
