[Bug 1178719] Re: geoip.ubuntu.com thinks Chattanooga, TN is in Central timezone


While it is great that this is now 'Confirmed' (it affects all Ubuntu
users in Chattanooga, TN). I gave up on this getting fixed years ago.  I
set up a DNS override and have a web server serving the correct time
zone on the LAN.  All I was looking for was who is the correct contact
for mistakes in geoip.ubuntu.com.  If this is a purchased feed and
someone upstream needs to be notified, who would that be?  I could not
find another service with the same mistake.  Maybe someone else can.

  Everything is correct except that Chattanooga TN is not in Central
  time.  America/New_York would provide the correct timezone for users
  installing Ubuntu in Chattanooga.
