Hi Ramanand,

I noticed that the zones in Yakutsk Time [1] seem to have their own names, such as "Khandyga Time" for Asia/Khandyga, and you seem to follow that convention for Asia/Chita. That causes some mismatch between the long names and abbreviations.

I dag out some past tzdata fixes to see how that happened. What I found out is that the 2013b fix [2] used "Yakutsk Time", but that the 2013c [3] fix used "Khandyga Time". 2013b went to JDK 7 updates and earlier ones and 2013c went to 8. JDK 9 inherits the 8 fix.

I prefer to restore the 2013b convention for Asia/Yakutsk, Asia/Chita, and Asia/Khandyga to have:

     {"Yakutsk Time", "YAKT",
      "Yakutsk Summer Time", "YAKST",
      "Yakutsk Time", "YAKT"}
