This package contains time zone description tables which can be used with
the MySQL server by users whose systems do not include zoneinfo files (e.g.
Microsoft Windows, HP-UX).
Attention! Please don't use this package if your system includes zoneinfo files (e.g. Linux, FreeBSD, Sun Solaris), please generate the
mysql.time_zone* tables from those files using the
mysql_tzinfo_to_sql utility instead! (Otherwise you may cause a
difference in datetime handling between MySQL and other applications on your
system.) More info »
