Due to specifying >= 1.0.0 as a runtime dependency it isn't possible to use tzinfo-data with ~> 0.3.37 which is a requirement of activesupport.

Is there a reason not to relax, or perhaps even remove, that runtime dependency requirement?

It looks like this will be solved on the activesupport end with version 4.1.

tzinfo-data requires interfaces that were introduced in tzinfo v1.0.0, so the dependency cannot be relaxed.

Please note that tzinfo ~> 0.3.37 isn't actually able to make use of tzinfo-data. Old versions of tzinfo (including ~> 0.3.37) bundled both the timezone data and the API to access it. In version 1.0.0, the timezone data was split out into the tzinfo-data gem.
