Description

LSAC(v2)
The tzdata packages contain data files with rules for various time zones. * Time reckoned by Earth's rotation drifts away from atomic time because of irregularities in the Earth's rate of rotation. For this reason, on 30 June 2015 at precisely 23:59:59, a leap second will be inserted (23:59:60), which will be followed by 00:00:00 the next day. (BZ#1180536, BZ#1181933, BZ#1181970, BZ#1181975) Users of tzdata are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which add this enhancement.
