Making /etc/localtime a symlink?



Hi,

I was wondering if, instead of currently making /etc/localtime a copy of
the timezone to use, it would be a good idea to actually make it a
symlink. In the (unlikely) event that information for a timezone would
chance, updates would take effect automatically.

initial /etc/localtime: part of glibc
e.g. /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Berlin: part of tzdata

So imho this would involve bundling /etc/localtime as a symlink in
glibc, a dep to tzdata (there is a dep from glibc-common to tzdata) and
adjusting installer etc. to not make copies but create symlinks.

What do others think?


Regards,
 Stefan
