what CentOS on which links? there's a pbone link and a
reference to time-a.nist.gov but no CentOS.
the tzdata file (which is updated beyond the 2006m package
i referenced) is a data file (the noarch signifies you can use
it on any architecture, i think S390 or powerpc or....).
i think the fine/safe emphasis is Red Hat's way of protecting
their support group and no harm done in this case.
I don't know about Red Hat to [ CentOS | Whitebox ] converts.
