      Downstream Change Summary

      There's an emphasis in our documentations to use the timezone database from MongoDB to workaround the timezone issue on operating systems that use the slim timezone format. However, with this change, this emphasis is not necessary anymore.

      In addition, we need to backport this change into the earlier versions.

      Description of Linked Ticket

      The latest version of the timelib library includes support for so-called slim-format timezone data files, which previous versions could not correctly ingest. Since timezone data files will soon be distributed in slim format by default, it is important that we are able to properly recognise and process them. We should upgrade our embedded version of timelib to at least v2021.02 to ensure that we can do so.
