This "tzcode" patch I did was a one-shot task just getting some time zone 
handling code within the Cygwin DLL up to date.  I don't know if there's 
any overlap between what I worked on and the tzcode+tzdata packages.  Eh, 
just the internal binary copy of a particular tzdata file which should be 
kept up to date: /usr/share/zoneinfo/posixrules.  Dunno how often that 
changes though.

It's fine with me for you to take over both tzcode+tzdata if nobody else 
objects.  Sounds like you have a regular schedule for looking over updates 
which is more than I have :-).
