The mechanism for this is in progress - updating the data files is
relatively easy. The issue here is that it also needs a zic update
to be a smooth transition (old zic will generate warnings for the new
data files) and that is a bigger job.
Longer term I'd like to see a dynamic update capability for the tzdata
files (and other similar data files, like the DNS root server list).
Of course, if you feel inclined, updating tzdata yourself, from the
distribution source file, is easy (just ignore the warnings from zic.)
