Hi all,
Please review the patch for jdk13u backport of tzdata2019b integration into jdk:
Webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~rpatil/8228469/13u/webrev.00/
Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8228469

The patch is not clean because: It uses "rearguard" format tzdata from IANA (instead of vanguard format), as the enhancement bug[1] is not fixed in jdk13u.
The patch has passed all the related testing including JCK.

Note: As per the mail from tzdata maintainers[2] there is a possibility that Brazil might not abolish DST.
