# Allowance for leap seconds added to each time zone file.

# This file is in the public domain.

# This file is generated automatically from the data in the public-domain
# leap-seconds.list file, which is copied from:

# The International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service
# periodically uses leap seconds to keep UTC to within 0.9 s of UT1
# (which measures the true angular orientation of the earth in space); see
# Levine J. Coordinated Universal Time and the leap second.

# There were no leap seconds before 1972, because the official mechanism
# accounting for the discrepancy between atomic time and the earth's rotation
# did not exist until the early 1970s.

# The correction (+ or -) is made at the given time, so lines
# will typically look like:
#	Leap	YEAR	MON	DAY	23:59:60	+	R/S
# or
#	Leap	YEAR	MON	DAY	23:59:59	-	R/S

# If the leapsecond is Rolling (R) the given time is local time.
# If the leapsecond is Stationary (S) the given time is UTC.
