Hi all,
Please review the latest TZDATA integration (tzdata2018f) into JDK12.
Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8213016
Webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~rpatil/8213016/webrev.00/

All the TimeZone related tests are passed after integration.

The used tzdata files are from the rearguard version of the tzdata2018f release with the patch applied given by the IANA maintainers[1].
This is done to avoid the value "25:00" from the Japanese ZoneRule. But, as proposed by Stephen[2], a fix from JDK side is also required which will be tracked via a new bug [3].
