Default Please, push tzdata update from CR into main 6.0 repo.

Good day.
The "tzdata-2011h-3.el6.noarch.rpm" needs to be pushed into mainline 6.0 repo ASAP. The mainline 6.0 repo version of tzdata contains no update for latest Russian (and maybe some others, don't know) timezone changes, causing major headaches.

I know it's against mainline policy, but here overal stability is an issue. Probably it has to be pushed as .centos update variant.--*Regards,

and yet I see in today's stream: tzdata-2011l-4.el6.src.rpm

... this particular package is usually a trivial package to
rebuild -- BUT THE Java related one is NOT. Local authorities
dont plan ahead, and fixing the matter is already documented
in the wiki with the 'rebuilding SRPMs' article

Coming up with a policy for 'special casing' CR matter into
updates seems like a discussion we need to have first. I am
not against doing so in limited cases. but we need to consider
the liklihood of breaking update path, and indeed, running
installs, first
