      Description

      tzupdater2.1.0-b04 is failing with tzdata2016g due to unset VERSION field in Makefile that is a part of IANA tzdata distribution:
      $java -jar tzupdater.jar -v -l http://www.iana.org/time-zones/repository/releases/tzdata2016g.tar.gz
      java.home: /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/jre
      java.vendor: Oracle Corporation
      java.version: 1.8.0_101
      tzupdater version 2.1.0-b04
      JRE tzdata version: tzdata2016d
      Downloaded file to /tmp/tz.tmp_4/tzdata.tar.gz
      Source directory does not contain file: VERSION

      /tmp/tz.tmp/VERSION file was created by tzupdater but it contains incorrect value generated from tzdata distribution's Makefile:
      tzdataunknown

      According to discussion on tz@iana.org mail-list the assumption that VERSION field should contain the release version number (i.e. 2016g) is no longer valid: http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/tz/2016-September/024221.html
