          - JDK-8229818: Add workaround to TZUpdater for converting tzdata files from vanguard to rearguard (JDK 7u only)

      This bug needs to be made public.

      Summary:

      TZUpdater tool usage for JDK 7u only has a workaround that involves translating vanguard to rearguard format before computation of javazic data sources.

      A new TZUpdater property "tzupdater.forceUseOfVanguard" is introduced as a fallback option if the TZUpdater fails due to unforeseen circumstances.

      The new TZUpdater property can be enabled by setting
      "-Dtzupdater.forceUseOfVanguard=true".

      2) Known Issues

      Please add:

      tzdata2020a

      The following issue is known to exist when processing tzdata2020a:

      Due to formatting changes in the IANA-maintained tzdata bundle, the TZUpdater tool fails to update to tzdata2020a for JDK 7u.

      The issue is being tracked under :
      https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8245950

      Please follow the bug for a temporary workaround.


      tzdata2016g section can be removed as it is very old.
