Wow - tzcode release is ancient - 2013c from April 2013 - went up to 2013i
last year and current is 2014i. 
Okay if you live in NA or EU, but not the rest of the world, where DST
changes on political whims, often on short notice. 

As this package is part of base, any chance of getting it updated with
similar frequency to ca-certs, or splitting tzdata into a separate package
which can be easily and frequently updated?
