    Sync zoneinfo database with tzdata2016g from
    * Turkey switched from EET/EEST (+02/+03) to permanent +03,
        effective 2016-09-07.  (Thanks to Burak AYDIN.)  Use "+03" rather
        than an invented abbreviation for the new time.
    * New leap second 2016-12-31 23:59:60 UTC as per IERS Bulletin C 52.
        (Thanks to Tim Parenti.)
    * For America/Los_Angeles, spring-forward transition times have been
        corrected from 02:00 to 02:01 in 1948, and from 02:00 to 01:00 in
    * For zones using Soviet time on 1919-07-01, transitions to UT-based
        time were at 00:00 UT, not at 02:00 local time.  The affected
        zones are Europe/Kirov, Europe/Moscow, Europe/Samara, and
        Europe/Ulyanovsk.  (Thanks to Alexander Belopolsky.)
    * The Factory zone now uses the time zone abbreviation -00 instead
        of a long English-language string, as -00 is now the normal way to
        represent an undefined time zone.
    * Several zones in Antarctica and the former Soviet Union, along
        with zones intended for ships at sea that cannot use POSIX TZ
        strings, now use numeric time zone abbreviations instead of
        invented or obsolete alphanumeric abbreviations.  The affected
        zones are Antarctica/Casey, Antarctica/Davis,
        Antarctica/DumontDUrville, Antarctica/Mawson, Antarctica/Rothera,
        Antarctica/Syowa, Antarctica/Troll, Antarctica/Vostok,
        Asia/Anadyr, Asia/Ashgabat, Asia/Baku, Asia/Bishkek, Asia/Chita,
        Asia/Dushanbe, Asia/Irkutsk, Asia/Kamchatka, Asia/Khandyga,
        Asia/Krasnoyarsk, Asia/Magadan, Asia/Omsk, Asia/Sakhalin,
        Asia/Samarkand, Asia/Srednekolymsk, Asia/Tashkent, Asia/Tbilisi,
        Asia/Ust-Nera, Asia/Vladivostok, Asia/Yakutsk, Asia/Yekaterinburg,
        Asia/Yerevan, Etc/GMT-14, Etc/GMT-13, Etc/GMT-12, Etc/GMT-11,
        Etc/GMT-10, Etc/GMT-9, Etc/GMT-8, Etc/GMT-7, Etc/GMT-6, Etc/GMT-5,
        Etc/GMT-4, Etc/GMT-3, Etc/GMT-2, Etc/GMT-1, Etc/GMT+1, Etc/GMT+2,
        Etc/GMT+3, Etc/GMT+4, Etc/GMT+5, Etc/GMT+6, Etc/GMT+7, Etc/GMT+8,
        Etc/GMT+9, Etc/GMT+10, Etc/GMT+11, Etc/GMT+12, Europe/Kaliningrad,
        Europe/Minsk, Europe/Samara, Europe/Volgograd, and
        Indian/Kerguelen.  For Europe/Moscow the invented abbreviation MSM
        was replaced by +05, whereas MSK and MSD were kept as they are not
        our invention and are widely used.
    * Rename Asia/Rangoon to Asia/Yangon, with a backward compatibility link.
        (Thanks to David Massoud.)
    * Comments now cite URLs for some 1917-1921 Russian DST decrees.
        (Thanks to Alexander Belopolsky.)
