I'm curious, how does it find the time zone database? It should look them up at runtime via something like a TZDIR environmentvariable. It should not include a copy of the database, or else it willbecome "stale" before too long.
Another attempt to answer the question from Leo Famulari I didn't get the question from the bugtracker by email: ,----| I'm curious, how does it find the time zone database?| | It should look them up at runtime via something like a TZDIR environment| variable.

My answerdidn't show up :-( Now I try to answer per email

Hi, I didn't realize that Stefan attempted this package already. Well, here is another attempt from today's Guix Packaging Meetup. Gábor and I hacked away on tz and it's dependencies a bit. I tested and built tz with --check --rounds=3 and `guix environment --ad-hoc tz -- tz` This is a very cool TUI! I use it daily but have had to install it with nix orbuild it with golang, depending on what machine I'm on. Now we can have it in guix. all best, jgart 3B1D 7F19 E36B B60C 0F5B 2CA9 A52A A2B4 77B6 DD35
