There used to be a python script that extracted the data. It was possibly from Solaris, but if I remember it was from a RH box.

If anyone has a ACS 4 classic setup it should be there. Also, it might show up in CVS on OACS.

when we originally pulled this data out in london we did
zdump -v `find /usr/share/zoneinfo/ -type f -print`
(well, more or less, it seems like there is also /usr/share/zoneinfo/right and /usr/share/zoneinfo/posix which duplicates a lot of the data). We then had a 3 or 4 line perl script to convert it to insert statements. With the new "copy" format I think it should be pretty easy to recreate the data.
