I can't confirm this to be true. In Feisty at least, coreutils looks to contain .mo files for TZ_DATA, but the language packs I have installed don't have them. Which language-pack do you see this in, or has it been fixed since you reported the bug?

In gutsy, the packages coreutils still contains dangling symlinks in /usr/share/locale/*/LC_TIME/

So, the localization of `date` has been broken since 2007, and the priority is Low?

The problem still there in Jaunty 9.04 (but date is correctly translated).
Feisty, Gutsy, Intrepid and Jaunty, ouch!

I think we should just fix the package to have the symlinks point to locale-langpack/ instead of locale/.
