      .The `name()` method of the `perl-DateTime-TimeZone` module now returns the time zone name

      The `perl-DateTime-TimeZone` module has been updated to version 2.62, which changed the value that is returned by the `name()` method from the time zone alias to the main time zone name.

      For more information and an example, see the Knowledgebase article link:https://access.redhat.com/articles/7071022[Change in the perl-DateTime-TimeZone API related to time zone name and alias].

      What were you trying to do that didn't work?

      Software expects to be able to read back a timezone name which is consistent with the configured name.

      Please provide the package NVR for which bug is seen:

      2.62-1.el9

      How reproducible:

      Any timezone which changed to "linked" will show this behaviour.

      Steps to reproduce

      use DateTime::TimeZone;
      my $tz = DateTime::TimeZone->new( name => 'Europe/Copenhagen' );
      my $name = $tz->name;
      print "$name\n";

      Expected results

      Europe/Copenhagen

      Actual results

      Europe/Berlin
