Oracle Linux Bug Fix Advisory ELBA-2018-1339


The following updated rpms for Oracle Linux 7 have been uploaded to the 
Unbreakable Linux Network:



Description of changes:

- Update the tzdata2018e.tar.gz file. Make the tzdata.zi file during prep.

- Rebase to tzdata-2018e
   - North Korea changed from UTC+8:30 to UTC+9 on May 5, 2018.
   - In this update, the upstream project now defaults to using
     the "vanguard" data implementation which includes negative DST offsets.
     However, we are continuing to provide the "rearguard" format
     for data which does not use negative DST offsets to provide
     better compatibility with existing tools.  We intend to transition
     to the "vanguard" data implementation in the future.
