Yes, JDK uses the time zone name translations from CLDR. Currently we
simply map names from CLDR's standard/daylight/generic to Java's
equivalents. Do you mean in CLDR, you guys discussed whether to flip
standard/daylight names based on the offset being positive/negative? Or

As you know, tz database 2018a flipped Europe/Dublin winter/summer time
rules. There were many messages posted in the tz mailing list, and Paul
Eggert decided to revert the change in tz database 2018c. For future
releases, it looks he want to add a zic build option to swap the rule.
We also discussed what to do in CLDR project. For now, we decided not to
make any changes for Europe/Dublin in CLDR release 33 (GA in March 2018)
at least. We don't have a solid plan for post CLDR 33 releases.
My understanding is that OpenJDK also consumes CLDR zone name data. Is
this true? If so, do you have any input for post CLDR 33 releases?
