http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/timezone.html?n=108 says "WIT". Perhaps that's wrong as well? Do you have a reference (URL) to an official document stating Jakarta's time zone?

Would you mind sending that to <email address hidden> as well (CC'ing <email address hidden>) to discuss this upstream? Thank you!

The document states that GMT +7 (jakarta time) is Waktu Indonesia Barat
(WIB), GMT +8 is Waktu Indonesia Tengah (WITA), and GMT +9 is Waktu
Indonesia Timur (WIT) Thank you for your attention.

Hello tzdata developers,

https://launchpad.net/bugs/365215 reported that tzdata currently puts
Jakarta into WIT (Indonesia Central Time), but it actually belongs
into WIB (Indonesia West Time).

It seems that
http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/timezone.html?n=108 also gets
this wrong (perhaps it's using tzdata?)

The official website is currently down, however this url still accessible

The document states that GMT +7 (jakarta time) is Waktu Indonesia Barat

Indonesia Timur (WIT).

Thank you!

Forwarded upstream, discussing there. Once it gets fixed there, I'll apply the fix to all stable releases (as usual for tzdata updates).

I discussed this with users of Ubuntu from Indonesia. They said that WIT stands for Western Indonesian Time (or in Indonesia : Waktu Indonesia Barat -- WIB.) Where WIT in Indonesians stands for Waktu Indonesia Timur (Eastern Indonesia Time) which confuse me. So I was wrong and apologize for the confusion.
