This isn't just an OZ issue, but out of idle curiosity, what's the deal on the bizarre set of timezones shipped as standard for OZ? The America file includes data for the bright lights of Inuvik, Rainy River, Shiprock and Pangnirtung (meaning no disrespect to their deserving citizens) but not, for example, New York, Boston, Providence, Philadelphia, Washington, Atlanta, Miami ...

On what planet does that make sense?

You can install timezones-america if need more timezone data.

We do it like we do because timezones takes too much space on flash.

It's the timezones-america file I was talking about, actually. But I take your basic point, New York is defined in the basic timezones file. So there is a U.S. Eastern Time Zone option available. What I was carping about is the bizarre assemblage of locations in the timezones-america file.
