      Description

      The 2013g release of the tz code and data is available. It reflects
      the following changes, which were either circulated on the tz mailing
      list or are relatively minor technical or administrative changes:

        Changes affecting current and near-future time stamps

          Morocco now observes DST from the last Sunday in March to the last
          Sunday in October, not April to September respectively. (Thanks
          to Steffen Thorsen.)

        Changes affecting 'zic'

          'zic' now runs on platforms that lack both hard links and symlinks.
          (Thanks to Theo Veenker for reporting the problem, for MinGW.)
          Also, fix some bugs on platforms that lack hard links but have symlinks.

          'zic -v' again warns that Asia/Tehran has no POSIX environment variable
          to predict the far future, fixing a bug introduced in 2013e.

        Changes affecting the build procedure

          The 'leapseconds' file is again put into the tzdata tarball.
          Also, 'leapseconds.awk', so tzdata is self-contained. (Thanks to
          Matt Burgess and Ian Abbott.) The timestamps of these and other
          dependent files in tarballs are adjusted more consistently.

        Changes affecting documentation and commentary

          The README file is now part of the data tarball as well as the code.
          It now states that files are public domain unless otherwise specified.
          (Thanks to Andrew Main (Zefram) for asking for clarifications.)
          Its details about the 1989 release moved to a place of honor near
          the end of NEWS.
