both of these groups: The original mod.sources posting of the (as far as
I can tell) earliest available version of Arthur David Olson's timezone
handling code, in 1986.
For the files present in both, it matches revision 7441f6b6 from the git
repository, except for SCCS IDs vs %W%.
The git repository contains a file ialloc.c that is not present in the
Probable renamed files - These appear in the git repository under their
names, but had the older names in the release.
New: localtime.c newctime.3 zdump.c zic.8 zic.c
Old: tzcomp.8 tzcomp.c tzdump.c settz.c settz.3
Files in the release but not this version of the git repository:
mkdir.c strchr.c: These never appear, though they're referenced in
pacificnew: doesn't appear until SCCS version 8.1 in revision aaf2a927
dated July 2006.
years.sh: Appears as SCCS 7.1 yearistype.sh, dated March 1992.
That's old enough to be in the age of 'mv the SCCS files to do the rename'
that was sometimes practiced before the full horror of its consequences
were known through hard-lost battles. Perhaps that's what happened?
