Dead link in documentation of ?timezones

Michael Chirico
This link is referenced in ?timezones and appears to have been
moved/removed. Is there a replacement?

Yes, already in the sources (*) of R at

   https://svn.r-project.org/R/trunk/src/library/base/man/timezones.Rd

We (Kurt \in {R-core}) do regularly (but not daily!) check all our URLs
--- as they are also checked for all CRAN packages -- and so
found and fixed the problems there.

So, (in the future) you can look into the development sources to
see if a URL problem has already been addressed.

Still, of course "thank you!"  for noticing and caring about it!

Best,
Martin
