Not only is Canberra missing, so is the entire territory it's in :)

Comment 2 Tom Tromey 2003-11-19 07:55:48 UTC
In honor of bug day, I looked into this.

The problem occurs because neither Australia/Canberra
nor Australia/ACT appear in /usr/share/zoneinfo/
It's unclear whether this is intentional; looking in
/usr/share/zoneinfo/Australia, I notice that the rules
for Canberra and ACT are the same as the rule for Sydney.

I sent email to Paul Eggert to see if he could shed light on
this.  I'll update the PR if I find anything out.

I looked upstream a bit; this situation still holds in the
cvs glibc.

Changing component to tzdata.  There are numerous omissions from the
list of cities.  For instance, some major US population centers such
as Houston, Dallas, and St. Louis are not there as well.

Comment 4 Mark Hulskamp 2004-01-07 22:44:09 UTC
Interestingly, if you do a text mode install of Fedora,
Australia/Canberra is present as a timezone to select

Comment 5 Jakub Jelinek 2004-10-06 19:34:06 UTC
tzdata package will definitely not diverge from upstream, so if you
want to convince upstream how is Australia/Canberra different from
Australia/Sydney, go ahead, but AFAIK there is no difference.
tzdata doesn't list many cities, it picks just some city from
each timezone.
