Launchpad uses the pytz module to build the list of timezone names, so this bug has been added to that project.

This is correct in the current pytz (2008i)

Hardy's python-tz package needs to be updated, or we need to provide our own pytz module instead of using the system package.

This is a side effect of Bug #207604 - the data files have been updated, but the timezone lists in the current pytz package are now out of date.

This was fixed in python-tz 2008h-1 . Kolkata was added. Calcutta remains to this day.
