Oh, we don't use those in tzdb; instead your name is mentioned in the commit message. I installed it that way.

I suggest using the project name without a
version.  How about the following?

.TH tzfile 5 "" tzdb

(or alternatively:)

.TH tzfile 5 "" "Time Zone Database"

Yes, that should work. I installed the attached proposed patch into the tzdb development repository. Feel free to migrate this into man-pages at your convenience. No rush of course.

I've been reluctant to do that upstream since I expect each

SBOM, SSDF, SCA, and so forth (and if you don't know what those acronyms
mean then I envy you :-).

I don't :-)
