Bug Description

The time zones map is outdated, for example my city is shown in UTC+3 time zone though it moved to UTC+4, Kemerovo is shown in UTC+8, though it moved to UTC+7 and so on.

Hello Punxnotdead, thanks for you bug report.

Could you specify what and where is your city? At what region it belongs? Thanks in advance

My city is Veliky Novgorod. It used to belong to UTC+3 time zone, with shift to UTC+4 time zone during daylight saving time. Now the daylight saving time is no longer observed and my city moved permanently to UTC+4 time zone, but it is shown in UTC+3 time zone. Also, the time zones borders and number are outdated (at least for Russia).I think it would be better to synchronize your time zones map completely with, say, wikipedia's.

This is likely a bug in the geonames service. Added it to the bug report

Ubuntu Geonames in fact return everything correct, but our lp:timezonemap project which powers libtimezonemap package is indeed incorrect. We have an SVG with world map and layers of each timezone overlaid across countries, which provides correct highlighting of the whole timezone upon selecting a location. Unfortunately those have not been updated after recent major timezone moves (e.g. Russia stopping daylight saving time and effectively moving all of it's timezones by one hour). Somebody who known how to work with SVG layers should update the sprites for each timezone.

Evan, can you assign this to whomever is responsible for the SVG map these days?
